You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Al Green would try to impeach a watermelon if it had to many seeds.  What a joke

The real question is, why is he doing this when everyone already knows it is bound to fail? Is it for attention and press coverage? Is he, as a junior congressman, being setup for some reason? And he is from Texas of all places. This seems to be all risk with little or no reward. I don't understand his reasoning.


Moreover, this could backfire on the Dems, like Maddow's tax return 'blockbuster' was. Once he files and fails, it will be nothing but an eye-roller when they file again. Which is something I'm sure they will do.

He's probably looking for campaign contributions.

It's prepping the battlefield in the minds of the emoting public.  That's what the Left gets out of this.  They KNOW Trump's thumbs will be going berserk on a daily basis over this - and it keeps the word IMPEACHMENT on the daily news cycle for a long time.

Which of course they think will give more legitimacy to the parallel 'government' Obama and Hillary are setting up down the street.

It's simply part of the means to the end to permanently putting themselves back into the power they think belongs only to them.

When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers and destroyers press upon them so fast that there is no resisting afterwards. The nature of the encroachment upon [the] American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching.

Draft away.  Looks like Comey's testimony will undercut your efforts.

Yep, this will come across unprecedented as the mother of all political witch hunts.

How anyone can read that there is anything in Comey's statement that implicates Trump is pure folly.

Unless something of substance surfaces at the hearings, the dims are going to have one massive  omelet on their face.

I get your point. Keep them on the defensive. ATTACK! ATTACK! ATTACK!, even if you have no chance of winning. That makes sense.


I sure hope you are wrong about Trump responding to this with some stupid-ass tweet. My fingers are crossed, but I'm not counting on it. All a tweet would do is to elevate the charge and keep it in the news cycle a week longer than it should be. Apparently, Trump is too stupid to understand how harmful his tweets are, to himself and his staff.

No they won't... and they DON'T care.  They will simply double-down and go making even greater and grander ridiculous charges.

Because, as they have told us - it's not the EVIDENCE that is importance - it is the SERIOUSNESS OF THE CHARGE.

And they know Trump has absolutely ZERO self-control and will readily fall into their trap of responding to them, which keeps bogus charges in the eyes and ears of the public for a LONG time, which after a time will simply become accepted as true.

@Oceander

According to news reports this morning, Trump will be in the White House dining room with his lawyers and close advisers during Comey's testimony.  I think the lawyers will stop him from tweeting during this.

I'll believe it when I see an absence of tweets from the twit-in-chief.

If true, that situation, my dear friends as TBR, is what 'an intervention' looks like.

Democrats believe they have an inherent right to power.  If they could they would pass an amendment banning all other political parties.

I cannot imagine what Green's constituency must be like to vote such an idiot in. Can't imagine who elects Sheila JACKson Lee, either. They sure aren't like any Texans I know.

The democrats running their mouths today may be cranks, but tomorrow who knows who'll be screaming from the well of congress. This whole farce is drifting dangerously close to a genuine third-world style coup.

No, it's not. As stupid as these impeachment terms are, it's not a "third world style coup". A third world style coup is an actual coup. This is just grandstanding.

They know they can't impeach him.  But what they can do is neutralize him and handcuff him from implementing his agenda.

Certainly they are trying to hamstring him legislatively.

But I also believe a highly motivated portion believe they can remove him. Why not? They've got 90% of the MSM and a good chunk of the GOP (IMO) on board if they tried.

All parties are playing it by ear right now, seeing where this "investigation" leads.

Some part of that is from Trump himself. He is compelled by some inner voice to respond to every idiotic charge that is leveled against him. He doesn't understand the game, and therefore he fall straight into almost every trap they set.


It is an odd situation when the most powerful thing you can do in a given situation is to do nothing, and keep your mouth shut. I'm not sure Trump is capable of doing either of those things.
