      Is the Senate able to make their own rules as the House did, not allowing Republicans to participate in the impeachment proceedings, etc? Seems like Pelosi and company are now forcing their desires on the other chamber. They have done their part…it is no longer in their court.

        Pelosi has no say about what happens in the Senate. It’s now up to McConnell to do the right thing and get rid of this hoax, but i’m not holding my breath.

      So what was the alternative? Saying nothing? Or making some wimpy speech? This was the best thing he could do. IMO we should be taking the good stuff when it comes, from McCarthy (who will almost certainly be the next Speaker if we don’t throw away the majority again), from Lindsey Graham, from Rand Paul, etc. They don’t have to be Trump’s besties to be useful on occasion.

      Lets remmber Trump is taking a crowbar to the box of corruption. Impeachment is designed to suck the air out of room. Keep the public occupied until Trump is out one way or another. Honestly McConnell don’t won’t the box of corruption opened. Most likely the deep state will impeach the will of the people on election day. Its called voter fraud. This worries me to no end. If these fools think they can steal the election they are in for one hell of a surprise. I do believe the zhit is going to hit the fan. Once light can enter the box of corruption the beginning of the revelation is here. Guess what the light has already breached the box. The deep state is scared and fighting for its life. We need to keep stand up and be counted.

        Early on in Trump’s admin Mike Pence was tasked with looking into voter fraud if you recall. His mandate did not seem to last long though. I’ll cross my fingers and pray he nipped it in the bud…..here’s to hoping.

          Don’t hold your breath.

          Gunny (I think) quite some time ago made a list of all the things Pence was asked/supposed to lead or do but didn’t.

          Judicial Watch is trying to clean up the voter rolls in several states where registered voters out number the eligible voters. Of course, the demoncrats are fighting that as well.

          God help us. We need to pray.
          Sometimes the injustice gets SO hard to watch!

          Before the election in 2016 Sundance mentioned Treepers doing a “postcard” campaign for DJT.

          I sent one to him and told him how I believe God, like He did with Esther, has “raised him up for such a time as this.”

          So that’s my theory & I’m sticking to it!

          Of course we need to do our part, pray, vote and get involved.

          Right now, burn up the phone lines!

          Then:
          We need ALL HANDS on deck to vote out every dem in 2020.

          PDJT needs our help! Now, during this impeachment sham, and later, TO TOTALLY WIPE OUT THE DEMS!

          We need to take back the House and get a LARGER majority in the Senate.
          WE NEED AT LEAST 60 if we really want to see PDJT succeed in truly draining the SWAMP!

          Example: Getting his choices for the administration confirmed,
          (John Ratcliffe DNI) not those the establishment will approve.
          (Wray FIB, etc)

          We need an even BIGGER monster vote than in 2016!

          Vote straight R, even if it’s a RINO.

          We need the MAJORITY in 2020.
          We can work to get the RINO’S out next time and really take over the party.

          The only way PDJT can DRAIN the SWAMP is with US!

          GOTV, volunteer to make calls, be a poll watcher or a poll challenger. Become a precinct delegate…

          Dems are very organized and they CHEAT!
          We cannot take anything for granted.
          Example: Virginia

          Now:
          CALL CALL CALL CALL CALL
          Later:
          GOTV GOTV GOTV GOTV GOTV

          TRUMP 2020 🇺🇸 MAGA/KAG

          God bless America, PDJT, his family, administration, Sundance, Admins and all the Treepers!

          Watch what’s going on in Wisconsin. A judge has ordered some voter rolls to be properly purged. Until the election commission does that job, the judge has fined them. I’m sure you can find news about that in a simple search.

      Brutally honest assessment! So many people hate Congress but think “their” Rep is actually doing a good job because they target their advertising to what the people in the district support and then blame all of the problems in DC on the “other” people, especially those in the “other” party. But, at the end of the day, they vote exactly the way their lobbyist overloads tell them to – cutting deals behind closed doors with each other that benefit them, and their families, while both sides laugh at us poor rubes out here thinking they care one whit about what happens to us!

        Vikingmom, you are spot on. I’ve seen many a politician out at the local bars from opposite sides of the isle having a drink and a good laugh together. Even after I had seen them arguing tooth and nail on the news with each other. It’s startling the first time you see it, and then after years of living through it you don’t even notice it anymore.

        I go to CPAC and the DMAW events most years. It’s one big circle jerk.

        Interesting tidbit; when Trump used to come to CPAC even before he was running for office, EVERYONE gravitated to him like he was the most important person in the room. He has an air about him that just projects alpha male. It’s fascinating. God Bless him, and I’m glad he’s on our team!

          I once saw a picture of Bill Clinton and Poppy Bush walking arm in arm, laughing uproariously. One of them held a cigar. I was quite taken aback.

          The gist of the article was the start of the Clinton Foundation. These were not political adversaries. Quite the contrary, they were both in on a secret that only now is being revealed.

          Lawyers are often the same way. They hang out with each other in their downtime. And their preferred m.o. is to push for settlements so that both lawyers are compensated. It is a cottage industry set up to exfiltrate wealth from unwitting “defendants.”

    I called 21 Republican Senators yesterday and left voicemails requesting they stop this sham impeachment and stand with President Trump. I mentioned that millions of Americans are watching as a President who has not committed any crime is being impeached because the democrats will not accept this President. I mentioned that the impeachment process started before he ever stepped into the White House. I expressed my disgust that this political hit job was occurring in the US. I expressed my anger that our elected Representatives were with few exceptions were not fighting for this President, for our country. Only Mitch McConnells VM was full. I will do whatever I can to support this President. I hope all Senators are getting an earful.

    This has been very painful. So heartbreaking. So unfair. I appreciate Leader McCarthy going to the floor with a speech that reflects that.

    I appreciate Leader McCarthy pointing out that President Trump keeps diligently working in spite of it all, and pointing out there is a huge cost to our country of leverage he does not have in carrying out that work for the American people.

      Yes, the pain I’ve been feeling over it is hard to describe. Definitely heartbreaking. And heart wrenching. I wrote a letter to the editor of our local paper, which they printed thankfully, about how this all is an injustice, not just to President Trump, but it’s an injustice to those of us who support him. Nancy said she doesn’t hate anyone, but looks to me her behavior is full of spite.

  25. The question now rests: Having “received” this “case” from the House, will the Senate consent to accept it?”

    When presented with a Chess move, will the Senate consent to make the next move … or will it turn the entire table over and fling all the pieces to the floor?

    Any actual Court of Law is entitled to summarily reject any case which is “invalid” for a number of reasons. Such as, for example, “although the Constitution anticipates that you will face ‘indictment, trial, conviction and punishment’ for what you did, there’s nothing here that would interest any Court.” Or, more simply: “this is a Bill of Attainder.”

    The Lawfare strategists anticipate that the Senate will, in fact, open a trial. And, “if they do, gotcha!!” If the Senate rejects this one, we simply go back to our House, pass another Bill of Attainder (or two or three at once, for good measure …) and bring it right back for another Trial. “The Law is a Weapon of War, and it means whatever we say it means as long as we get out way.” During the upcoming year, “Lawfare” could completely paralyze the entire Congress with one entirely-Unconstitutional attempt at impeachment after another after another.

    Future Historians, of course, will stare at us in utter disbelief. And, in the eyes of every other nation on this planet, we will forever be the laughingstock. The well-deserved butt of cruel jokes.

    McCarthy did get his tongue to sync with his brain. Both are equally useless. I’ve always wondered where and when the vote takes place that gets people like Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, McCarthy, Feinstein, Schiff and McConnell into such high places. Is it a matter of seniority? Did Nadler at one time have some gravitas, something that made the others think he would be a good leader?
