  1. Joe Biden is going to tell the Chief Justice to stuff his subpoena? Maybe he could challenge him to a push-up contest for testimony.

    No fan of Mitch, but his clearing the January Senate schedule is meant as a threat to Democrats.
    They are the ones headed to trial, not the President.

    Unless they’re truly suicidal, the House fails to impeach by one vote.

            I’m a big believer that POTUS should send a one page letter that says:

            – 3.5% unemployment
            – 2%+ GDP growth
            – ISIS destroyed, leaders killed
            – China tariffs working
            – $130B in non-US NATO funding secured
            – USMCA ratified…by Mexico
            – 27,000 Mexican troops helping control illegal immigration while we BUILD THE WALL
            – Democrats pursuing impeachment ripping country in two instead of passing the legislation they ran on.
            – FBI, DOJ, CIA officials discovered spying on political campaigns.

            The State of the Union outside of the swamp is good. Continued un-American attempts to overthrow democratic elections by the Democrat/Burueacrat/Media complex is bad. Apparently, not everyone thinks we should make America great again.

            Then video tape a SOTU address from the Oval Office and release it on the WH website, YouTube, etc.

            Screw Pelosi and her authoritarianism.

                Send a letter. Trump has done a fantastic job blowing up 50 years of “the way we’ve always done it” stupid ideas mainly driven by the media whordes.

                A one page bullet-point letter would also reaffirm the separation of powers. POTUS is not subservient to Congress. Don’t give them the satisfaction. Heck, last year, I suggested he give the SOTU at a MAGA rally. I still think that would be awesome.

            Yes, and if the House Democrats decide to censure President Trump instead of going with impeachment, I suspect that banning him from giving speeches from the floor of the House will be part of the penalty.

            I doubt she will try that again. He can have an even bigger audience if she chooses to play her petty game and is rude again. He can give the SOTU from any location. The controversy was whether he would give it in the House or elsewhere. He didn’t play her game. He politely accepted her delay – and put the spotlight on her pathetic conduct. She decided to ‘invite’ after all, didn’t she?

            I like the idea of democrats being surrounded by supporters of PDJT in a larger venue with decor chosen by Melania. lol

          Correct me if I am wrong…but doesn’t the Speaker of the House (Pelousey) have to “invite” the President to give the “State of the Union” from the House chambers????

          If so, my guess is that Pelousey will refuse to invite President Trump to give the SOTU, in the House, because of the status of the fake impeachment process…being dragged on. She will use the excuse that “because of the pending impeachment of the POTUS, she has determined that the POTUS can not give the SOTU speech in the (Her) House…

              A bit more clarificattion – The SOTU is not a by invitation only event. It is a Constitutional requirement of our presidents that does not depend on the whims of any politician, group of politicians, or branch of government. The reason it has been held in the House is because the House has more seating capacity than the Senate – and there are many locations with an even larger seating capacity from which he is free to choose. Big enough to open it to the public…as his rallies have proven.

              The political realities are (1) McConnell’s not op for reelection for 12 months, (2) voters have a short memory.

              You’re exhibiting overconfidence in your expectations. Any good trial laywer knows a not guilty verdict is never, ever certain or assured, despite abindabce of evidence to the contrary.

              And when the jury (Senate) has been hostile and unsupportive overall toward the defendant Trump for three years, an abundance of research, strategy, aggressiveness, and caution are needed to prevail, rather than emotional exuberance.

                3) McConnell is 77 and the Chamber of Commerce will guarantee him a golden parachute whenever and however he decides to leave.

                McConnell’s only worry is his legacy of confirming judges and Supreme Court Justices; I’m sure replacing Justice Ginsburg is factoring into his decision making process.

                I think the ones really worried are the 13 or so Republican senators that are also up for re-election in 2020. I’m sure most of them like being in charge.

            The GOP is on trial more than Trump. If the GOP Senators fail to vote against conviction unanimously, the party itself will risk going the way of the Whigs. If even a handful of GOP Senators vote for conviction, the GOP will have committed political suicide. Trump has the approval of over 90% GOP voters. It is his party now. Mitch knows that.

Do you really think with Trump having over 90% approval ratings among republicans he would remove him? That would be suicide for the Republican party. The conservatives may as well split off into a third party at that point. The Republican party will lose at the polls for decades. I can promise you if they remove Trump I am done with them, why support them if they are working against you?

He also has a brain for “what’s in it for me” like all politicians. And he knows the economy is good, the American people are seeing this for what it is, a sham…. he will have a chance to set the record straight.

    • Those “big ol huevos” have been developed over time from his work in the construction business in NY. I have no doubt that the line is long that threatened Donald Trump with something over the years if he didn’t do it their way. I also have no doubt that his response has pretty much been the same: Bring it on!. I don’t think there’s much that he’s afraid of and he is certainly not afraid of this charade. He has tools at his disposal and, for some reason, the left/Dems/enemedia seem to think he can be bullied into 1) not using them and 2) going away. The hubris on the left is amazing and tells you that this is something they’ve been doing for a long time (and prior to this it’s been successful).

      She would NOT do this simply to prevent Trump from winning in 2020. (What good would that do if she/Dems loses the House in the process?)
      And she doesn’t even want to talk about it

      This is about something else…
      All I can come up with is
      MAJOR distraction from or counter-measure to…..
      Barr/Durham Russia Investigation (coup exposure)
      Democrat Ukraine shenanigans (and more than just 2016 election ones)
      or both

        I’m thoroughly convinced that there has to be a very important reason behind the Dem’s suicide mission to take out “The Donald” and we might finally be getting a glimpse of what that is. I found this on Tracy Beanz twitter account yesterday and submit to my fellow treepers this may be behind at least some of their angst.

        Krashman, it certainly is an intended distraction. But it’s about more than just coup exposure, which is serious enough; it’s about exposing long-term corruption in our body politic. POTUS has very recently said just that.

        Joe Sixpack has been working/raising family/paying taxes/living his life. He hasn’t been paying much attention to the workings of .gov; we are the good guys, so .gov has been the proverbial boy scouts. Nothing to worry about there.

        Except that it is corrupt as hell, and has been for several generations, at least. Mr. Sixpack is about to get a huge wake-up call. .gov has been living high on Mr. Sixpack’s hog.

        Mr. Sixpack is going to demand that these .gov types PAY. This is a huge part of the reason for demon party insanity. They know what they did, and they are trying anything to prevent their coming exposure; the closer we get to show time, the more desperate the corrupticrats get.

        In SD’s words: “Trillions are at stake”. That says it all. It’s not personality. It’s not even ideology. It’s just money. LOTS of money.

        Over the years, the undocumented, extra-constitutional administering of the US (and other countries) has become a huge and profitable international business. A global “Uni-Party” business, and one that supports multiple generations of a lot of families. PDJT has threatened that.

        If PDJT was not an immediate existential threat to them, they would simply wait him out. After all, he has no obvious successor on the horizon, no one with his rare combination of attributes waits to continue his policies. Most likely, the next “GOP” candidate will be the usual, “respectful and respectable” Republican role player.

        PDJT is historically a deal-maker, preferring creative win-win outcomes over blunt force. That things have gotten to this point suggests, not that no deals were offered, but that no deal was achievable.

        Deepstate (or whatever we should call The Opposition) is fighting for its survival, and is prepared to lose many footsoldiers, even some generals, and spend vast treasure in the fight. The actions of the House show that they have gone all-in. They see it failing in their own polling, but persist. Their action is a mark of their desperation, but should not be taken as a sign of weakness.

        A cornered animal is the most dangerous one, and we have yet to see just how many Senate markers will be called in, in order to remove PDJT.

    Maybe it’s just hope, but is Trump playing rope-a-dope?

    Back in 1974, Muhammad Ali challenged heavyweight champion George Foreman for the title in Zaire, known as the Rumble in the Jungle. Ali’s strategy was to let Foreman hit him with everything for the first several rounds, while Ali leaned against the ropes and covered his body with his arms. Ali’s own trainer screamed at him, thinking he would be destroyed.

    Then in the 8th round, with Foreman visibly tiring, Ali finally punched back, knocking out the champion to win the title.

    Could PDJT be playing the same game? Perhaps this is the *only* strategy that can work for him, when he’s surrounded by swamp creatures in Congress, on K street, and inside his own administration. If President Trump can’t trust anybody, the only thing he can do is let the swamp attack him with everything they have.

    So what’s the 8th round here? An impeachment trial in the Senate, which will be an excellent reason to declassify AND release EVERYTHING. Documents that expose swamp Democrats. Documents that expose swamp Republicans. Documents that expose the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the State Department, EVERYONE.

    I know this sounds a bit like the Tick Tock crowd, but PDJT seems to be goading the House Democrats into impeaching him. As many times as I’ve wondered about his strategy, I’ve marveled at his results. He beat the Bushes and their $100 million dollar campaign. He beat the Clintons and their $billions campaign. He beats the 99.9% negative press he gets every single day.

    Maybe, just maybe, this is what winning looks like. We just don’t see it yet…

      He developed the,Ali shuffle, which didn’t telegraph anything. A real WTF? move.
      Like Ali, PDJT has MANY moves, and again like Ali, he plays them like a master violinist plays his stradivarious.

Unfortunately, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in U.S. Term Limits v. Thornton that states may not individually enact term limits for their members of Congress and the popular and hard-won congressional term limits never went into effect.

      In 2016, USTL launched the Term Limits Convention, a new project to enact a constitutional amendment for congressional term limits. Under this approach, state legislators can enact term limits for the Congress in Washington and no member of Congress can stop them……”

            Elections are the term limits we need. Lame ducks are far worse. In fact, the rare political accomplishments we see often happen *only* under the gun at reelection time. Reelection is their main incentive to leave the trough now and again, and answer to the will of the people.

            What we desperately need to do instead is to demand voter ID and pre-registration, punish / deport illegal voters, reject Agenda 21 rezoning and efforts to undermine electoral college, toss out Soros hackable voting terminals and go back to traceable paper ballots, eliminate the counting of “extra” (including mail-in and vote harvesting) ballots after precincts have closed, and vet primary candidates six ways to Sunday.

            The recklessness we have seen these past few election cycles speaks to our inability to vet who we elect to office (in the primaries) as well as our inability to prevent election fraud. In other words, this insurrection is what happens when the system is rigged so that they no longer need fear the voters.

                  But we do have the good luck of public skepticism through embarrassment, on our side. The burning of MSM comes with skepticism through sunlight, it’s as if those rays burn a hole right through the generations of gaslighting. Truth has been seeping out all over the place these past decades thanks to the intranet, but most rigorously ever since Trump, and what he’s exposed within the MSM’s “fake-news”. This exposure has created skepticism at massive (YUGE!) levels, and folks began to realize … “Hey, we’ve been snookered” – and no one likes to admit they’ve been snookered, it’s embarrassing.

                  Now, it’s up to the masses to destroy the chance of being snookered and embarrassed again. They have a choice, will they/will they not turn away from MSM “fake-news”? If they do turn away and abandon all of it = cause and effect = no viewers = power of the purse = no revenue = MSM bankrupt = no masses embarrassed by being snookered = the will of the people takes over to avoid embarrassment once again, and find their own information.

                  Ultimately, it’s up to the masses to put aside the easy-button of the MSM and exert themselves to fill-in the search bar of their browser. I think most of the brainwashing comes from the easy-button of FaceBlowme type “apps”, they pump out headlines “tailored to the user” and keeps pumping ONLY what the user “wants to see”, regardless of bias or truths, FB admits publically they gear results based solely on what the user says they want, resulting in massive amounts of people stuck in a bubble. Social media is the most dangerous tool used in the weaponization of the MSM against the people, and FB users don’t even know it – because it’s all “tailored” to their bubble, how would they even know they’re being snookered? They don’t.

                  It won’t be easy to turn the MSM to (figurative) ash, but it is possible, and I believe the (figurative) flames of the people are burning, and with each passing day, more and more is exposed, and more and more (figurative) gasoline is poured on, and more and more of the MSM (figuratively) burns.

                  Because only through the ashes of a fiery destruction, can the new healthy sprout find its way up and out of the diseased growth of yesterday, and bask in the rays of sunlight that will bring the new forest of tomorrow.

      There are less rules for a Concon than for House Impeachment procedures. There are NO LIMITS to what may be proposed, including repeal of ANY PARTS of the Constitution. Leftist scum would propose removing 2 Amendment and religious protections of 1 Amendment.

      Yes, states have to ratify it, but you don’t want it to EVER get that far, or EVER let the rat bastards anywhere near rewriting the Constitution.

      Sheesh!

        The last thing I’d expect Congress to do is amend for term limits. An amendment can be moved through 3/4th of state legislatures—avoids convention unknowns and bypasses Congress. Long shot? Yeah, but it is an option. Too bad the 22nd Amendment didn’t address Congress and the federal judiciary (i.e., the other two branches).

    What will Mitch decide are the Senate trial rules? Is he going to be equally partisan by only allowing witnesses and cross-examination approved by the majority as the Dems did in the House?

    Of course not. That’s not the way a card carrying member of the Uniparty operates.

    The big question is what is Trump’s defense strategy look like? Is going all out to prove to the Senate the ongoing coup against him from his first day in office or will his defense be similar to his strategy on Spygate which has been to delegate and then Hope & Pray?

    I first thought that the best thing for McConnell to do minutes after the demonrats vote to impeach (assuming that their charade doesn’t derail due to dimms in Trump districts not wanting to commit political suicide) was to gather on the Senate steps along with most of his GOP Senate colleagues (minus Mittens, of course) and say that he will not take up this sham impeachment. But what would be even better is to simply post a letter online signed by most of the Senate GOP (minus Mittens, of course) saying in a few short sentences that there will be no Senate trial due to the House not following any rational standards for impeachment.

              In other words, he somehow gets out of this and avoids any kind of legal action for prior misdeeds, graft, and corruption.

              So, how does he conduct himself to make that happen?

              Now, if he could keep all of his ill-gotten gains, AND stay in office, how would that happen? He’d have to facilitate the take down of Trump, and then slide back into the Senate Minority Leader role. But, he’s seen by now that Trump is no joke, no fluke; he’s seen that Trump is not corruptible and that ALL OF THE MOST ADVANCED INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES OF THE WORLD have NOT BEEN ABLE to take Trump down. So, he then knows that his covert actions to take down Trump would be known especially if he fails.

    She doesn’t need anything from the House committees other than a Bill of Attainder, declaring on the House’s own [non-existent …] authority that the President is guilty (of something or other), and shall be punished by impeachment without a trial or due process. Her Lawfare minions assure her that, as long as they don’t call it “Attainder,” §1.9.3 does not apply. “Impeachment is a purely political move – if the Founders didn’t include ‘maladministration,’ obviously they meant to, and The Federalist must have mis-quoted them. So there.

    It’s interesting to hear some of the commentary on TV and other places about what could happen in the Senate and the House. I prefer to keep things as simple and direct as possible about this whole impeachment charade.

    First, the House now has no choice but, to vote on articles of impeachment. Some or all of the articles will likely pass along party lines with some democrat defections so that some of the vulnerable democrats can claim some form of political cover. If this part of their plan fails then Pelosi will be finished as speaker or will be so weakened that she will be no better than a figurehead for the far left of the party in the House. Though, it’s not to say that they may already be the case.

    Once it gets to the Senate there will be a trial. There has to be one at this point. Hell, President Trump wants a trial. This will be an opportunity to expose many things but, it won’t be to the President’s detriment but, it will be on those that perpetuated this whole thing. In the end, a vote will take place in the Senate and will result in an acquittal for the President. The numbers/votes just aren’t there to convict even if Romney and few other RINO’s vote to convict. To be honest, they would be politically foolish to do so. Hell, it wouldn’t surprise me if Sen Manchin of West Virginia votes for acquittal. The only way it doesn’t at this point is if something comes out that directly implicates the President with direct and incontrovertible evidence. At this point, if there was something that significant it would have come out by now.

    If the Senate Republicans are foolish enough to vote with the Democrats to convict then that would finish the Republican Party. They are not, at this point, going to commit political suicide to help the Democrats get rid of President Trump.

    This whole thing also proves that the Democratic Party has no faith that any of their current field of their clown car candidates can beat Trump in the general election and if the economy continues to be as good as it is now Trump wins re-election.

    At this point, to me it is that simple. Everything else is a lot of noise. Just look at Pelosi’s press conference as an example of this and the hearing earlier in the week. It was all for show, and no substance.

      Paul Ryan turned on Trump and with his steadfast refusal to align with Trump, he was welcomed by the Resistance. McConnell has the same opportunity. Each Senator as well.

      The Senate did not work to get Trump to trial. He may well be dropped in their lap. Their decision at that point is simple: sell out or hold fast? Selling out would bring infinite payback from DC without the hassle of attending senate sessions ever again. Why would that decision be hard?

      When the Senate trial commences, the president and his legal team will have an opportunity to turn the tables on the accusers and turn them into the accused — if the Senate rules for the trial will allow it.

      As I said earlier, a key question which must now be addressed is whether or not early public release of the classified Spygate documents during the course of the post-impeachment Senate trial would legally prejudice any criminal cases brought later against the Spygate perpetrators.

      ‘Early release’ in this context is defined as a release of classified Spygate documents which occurs before any of the Spygate perpetrators have been charged with a crime.

      How specifically do the currently classified Spygate documents get declassified and publicly released prior to the Spygate perpetrators being charged with crimes without legally prejudicing the cases against them?

      Here is how I think it might be done:

      (1) The House of Representatives passes articles of impeachment against President Trump which include allegations of obstruction of justice as described in the Mueller Report.

      (2) The rules the Senate establishes for conduct of the follow-on trial allow the President’s defense team to request declassification and public release of all currently classified Spygate documents thought to be pertinent to establishing Donald Trump’s guilt or innocence.

      (3) Under the Senate’s authority, the President’s legal team issues a subpoena for all of the Spygate documents included on the Sundance Sunlight Document List (SSDL). The request also includes declassification and public release of all those documents.

      (4) The Department of Justice reviews the Senate subpoena and the associated declassification request to determine if public release of these documents would be legally prejudicial to any criminal cases brought later against the Spygate perpetrators; and also if public release would harm national security.

      (5) In reviewing the Senate’s subpoena and the declassification request, the Department of Justice and AG William Barr must weigh the value of the public’s right to know against any possible future harm that might be done to national security and to subsequently filed criminal cases.

      (6) In this particular situation, the larger and most fundamental question must be asked: Is the public interest best served by declassification and public release of the Spygate documents, even if there is the potential for future harm to national security and to subsequently filed criminal cases?

      Assuming that most all of the material on the Sundance Sunlight Document List is declassified and publicly released per direction of AG William Barr; and assuming the Senate rules for the trial allow for it, then subpoenas are issued by the President’s defense team under the Senate’s authority to all of the Spygate perpetrators for their testimony as witnesses in the Senate trial.

      The perps are put under oath. Careful notes are taken to determine if anything they say contradicts known facts. If so, they are referred to the DOJ for prosecution for lying under oath. Let the Democrats suffer the political consequences if all of the Spygate perps choose to take the 5th Amendment in the course of the Senate trial.

      That said, it must be said once again that one way or another, it is imperative that the Spygate perpetrators be criminally charged for their role in the coup against the president.

      IMHO, as long as early release of the classified Spygate documents is done in response to a Senate subpoena issued in the course of a post impeachment trial of the president, I have to believe that criminal cases brought later against the Spygate perps would not be legally prejudiced by that early release.

      Not that the Spygate perp’s lawyers wouldn’t try to make that argument in court; they will. As I said in my first post, if anything is certain, it’s that as the oncoming Battle of Political Gettysburg evolves, any and all lawfare tactics will be used by one side or the other to gain a political or legal advantage.

The Republicans have said in the past that their party is a Big Tent. Soon it will be time to watch the center ring in The Greatest Show on Earth.

    We don’t need an Impeachment Trial to expose the left. AG Barr needs to bring charges against FISA judges, FISA liars, Crowdstrike, Fusion GPS, and previous FBI, CIA, NSA, SOS, DOJ leadership and their cronies. DRAIN THE SWAMP!

    Mitch’s probable calculus:
    Too many scared senators, then tolerate Trump, throw in the towel, and acquit.
    Rabid senators caught up in the opportunity of a lifetime, no holding them back, grab a fig leaf and allow a vote to convict.

    If acquittal, McConnell coasts to reelection and can always stick it to Trump with a smile.
    If conviction, McConnell would be hailed by DC as the liberator, regardless of reelection. He’d have the Ryan retirement: $$$$$$$.

    Problem is, a conviction would tear the country apart, meaning no one knows what comes next.

    • World War III. Seriously. Not from “our side” fighting back, but from their inability to restrain themselves once they’ve tasted a victory of such magnitude (nation-destroying, in essence). Read how Hitler reacted when he encountered no resistance to his taking back the Saar region in 1935: the next year, he occupied the Rhineland, and two years later, took Austria. then Czechoslovakia in 1938. The Insane Left will not be able to restrain themselves; neither will the Mohammedans, and probably many more all over the world.

      As I noted in another comment a few days ago, it gives added meaning to “there are trillions at stake”. There are all the lives in the world at stake.

    If nothing else the Senate trial will once and for all expose people like McConnell and Barr as either true white hats or true black hats IMO.

    Unfortunately if it is black hats then PT is out which will result in the economy nose diving, crime, corruption increasing exponentially, massive illegals immigration becomes the norm, border wall halted and torn down, huge increase in taxes and a shift toward socialism and more chipping away at 1st and 2nd amendments.

    All of this done so the DS can protect the institutions, themselves and allow their money laundering schemes to continue.

    How incredibly destructive and selfish to their children and grandchildren. What kind of people chose to leave that legacy to their future family generations?

    So in the end let’s bring it and finally expose everyone for who and what they really are so history can document it all once and for all.

      McConnell et al have had multiple opportunities to kneecap Trump. They could easily have folded up the tent on Kavanaugh ahead of the midterms. All the “experts” claimed the GOP was sealing its fate in the midterms by confirming Kavanaugh. Instead? One GOP defection offset by one Democrat defection…and the GOP gained seats the next month in the November midterms on the strength of Trump’s direct campaigning for Senate candidates. I don’t buy this logic that says McConnell would rather horse trade votes from the minority. Those Senators know how much being in the minority sucks. They lose their powerful chairmanships. I think they even lose their bigger offices…at least that’s how it works in the House. There is much more $$$ to be made in the majority.

      I do think people are bizarrely thinking there’s going to be some Perry Mason type of “trial”. The Clinton trial consisted of the House Managers presenting their case, several taped depositions, and mostly closed-door trial/deliberations. I’ll be very surprised if the Senate holds a true “trial” with witnesses and cross-examination. These people are used to operating under a cloak of secrecy. I’ll be happy if they do, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

        I agree Hok, and to add to that, the far left wants to take out the entire republican party (jail them if they could), they have more than just their power/ offices at stake here.While i think the repubs in the senate are spineless weasels I don’t see them cutting their own throats. The wild card I think is Giuliana. If he digs up enough evidence He will be hard to ignore, hence the reason they are trying to take him out. It’s going to be an interesting couple of weeks ahead.

    No matter the result, it has finally hit me how hard and earnestly PDJT is fighting the swamp at his own peril.

    I get a very painful feeling that the House and Senate may impeach to essentially establish a parliamentary style government, whereby the President is a “ceremonial” actor who serves at the pleasure of the Congress (they can always impeach). Under that dynamic the “Republicans” can exist as the permanent opposition party, supported by the current courts put in place by the current self serving members (who could care less what comes next). Pockets of “Republican” elected Congressional members will be allowed to exist, to be erased over time by migrants, gerrymandering or internal migration of US Citizens.

    The population of the Executive Branch will continue per the constitution, with senate actually naming the candidates via the President, who “listens” or else.

    This is the end game for the democrats and is very reachable and even sustainable in today’s social climate.

      I think that’s a reality-based observation, considerably more than “a feeling”.

  47. I have no illusions about Mitch, but he is not going to wreck his career, wreck the Senate, wreck the Republican Party and wreck the country to impeach the President for asking about CrowdStrike–a president who would then be elected again anyway. Yes, he has leverage, but so does the President–including leverage we don’t even know about.

    That said, I still doubt this even goes to the Senate. Democrats may view the Durham Probe as a Black Swan-event for which Impeachment is required as a counter-narrative. But it could be even worse for them: a bad IG Report, Durham indictments and a Senate Trial exposing Ukraine bribery
    and collusion, the Bidens, Schiff, CIA mole Eric Ciarmarella, CrowdStrike, etc,.

    A perfect storm for a perfect letter.
