"Queens Man Impeached."



From the article:
The entire Queens House delegation voted in favor of impeachment....

Trump’s old Jamaica Estates home, where he lived as an infant until he was four years old, went back on the market after it was sold to a Chinese investor and rented on Airbnb for $725 a night....

Trump’s parents’ graves are located at All Faiths Cemetery in Middle Village. The cemetery was slapped with a lawsuit by New York Attorney General Letitia James earlier this year for allegedly misappropriating funds.

Florida Man.

Finally a press outlet treats the story with the dignity that it deserves.

That one's not a fan.

Phil 314 said...

I thought he was Putins man.

Amadeus 48 said...

Thanks, rehajm. I had to think about that for a second or two.

Amadeus 48 said...

At least, it should "Former Queens man".

The venom Trump elicits from opponents is awesome.

"We piss on your grave!"

Bob Boyd said...

If you want to find dirt on Trump's dad, his grave is a sure bet.

Will Sherman said...

I find the headline lacking. It should read: "Fellow Queenies impeach their own"

But rehajm's right he's a Florida man.

AllenS said...

Very good, Bob Boyd.

allegedly misappropriating funds.

Someone's buried treasure surfaced due to frost heave?

Will Sherman said...

Bob Boyd, that's low.

That infant, Trump! And the fraudulent scheme of his dead parents!

Those Trumps are awful people, wrote the MSM Xerson, with irony.

stevew said...

Are they bragging?

Bob Boyd said...

Bob Boyd, that's low.

Are you kidding? Every reporter in NYC just rushed down there. They'll be lucky if Queens doesn't capsize from the sudden influx.

traditionalguy said...

Queens, New York. The home of the First Trump Tower.

Bob Boyd wins, after he said...

The “local angle” is slanted?

daskol said...

We actually have a law on the books called the "Anything But Trump Act." Losers.

daskol said...

That's an Albany law, though, not Queens, from a guy who lived in Brooklyn. There's a Donald J Trump State Park right where lots of fancy people have weekend homes, and it's driving them nuts to have to drive past it.

It's a funny headline.

Nice to see you all rushing to defend Daddy from the most mundane slight. Orange Man God is just as psycho-pathetic pathological condition as Orange Man Bad. It's why you people justify your deplorable nature by comparison to Antifa, your equal but opposite number..

robother said...

Fake news! He hasn't been impeached, until Pelosi appoints managers and send the Articles over to Mitch. Which may never happen. We must spend the next 5 years checking every morning to see if that momentous historic event has happened. I only hope the markets can adjust to this uncertainty, this sword of Damocles hanging over the Queens Presidency.

Regarding impeachment, a real example of quid pro quo.

“ If these progressives want to know what actual treason looks like, they should consult liberal lion Ted Kennedy, who not only allegedly sent secret messages to the Soviets in the midst of the cold war, he also begged them to intervene in a U.S. presidential election in order to unseat President Ronald Reagan. That’s no exaggeration.

According to Soviet documents unearthed in the early 1990’s, Kennedy literally asked the Soviets, avowed enemies of the U.S., to intervene on behalf of the Democratic party in the 1984 elections. Kennedy’s communist communique was so secret that it was not discovered until 1991, eight years after Kennedy had initiated his Soviet gambit:

Picking his way through the Soviet archives that Boris Yeltsin had just thrown open, in 1991 Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times, came across an arresting memorandum. Composed in 1983 by Victor Chebrikov, the top man at the KGB, the memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy.

“On 9-10 May of this year,” the May 14 memorandum explained, “Sen. Edward Kennedy’s close friend and trusted confidant [John] Tunney was in Moscow.” (Tunney was Kennedy’s law school roommate and a former Democratic senator from California.) “The senator charged Tunney to convey the following message, through confidential contacts, to the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Y. Andropov.”

Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. “The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.”

Kennedy made Andropov a couple of specific offers.

First he offered to visit Moscow. “The main purpose of the meeting, according to the senator, would be to arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they may be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA.” Kennedy would help the Soviets deal with Reagan by telling them how to brush up their propaganda.”

For a few seconds I thought this pic of Trump was from SNL.

Please, be specific. Quote one single comment prior to yours that can in any possible fair way be described as "Orange Man God".

narciso said...

it's striking how that story doesn't percolate, but the number of democrats, who were soviet catspaws, or that of their proxies, Kerry, harkin, dodd, et al, is a large cohort,

"psycho-pathetic pathological condition"

Howard--it takes one to know one.

Eric said...

All politics is local.

Michael K said...

Howard, thank you for your in-kind contribution to the landslide.

Leland said...

"the first from Queens"

They anticipate more?

Howard said...

You see that's my whole point. You people take all of this so personally. Like you expect me to get up in a court of law and try my case with 35 8 by 10 glossy photos with circles and arrows yada yada yada. I guess the worst part about being conned is you don't know it at least you're ego doesn't know it and your ID actually enjoys being conned deep down however your super ego knows that you're being played for a fool and that must be the source of your anger and frustration.

Qwinn said...

Cynicism is such a useful pose, isn't it? You can never be proven wrong. No matter how good things get, no matter how wrong all your predictions are, all you have to do is... be even more cynical!

It sure is boring as hell, not to mention useless, though.

MayBee said...

I love it.

robother said...

Howard has a recovered memory of Freud messing around with his mother's mind. ID, ego and super ego, I haven't heard those terms since 1969. Shouldn't "super ego" be the one in all caps?

readering said...

Does this mean Trump will stop reading?

dbp said...

If you read the piece as satire, it's pretty funny. Also, it is extra funny when you also realize it was not meant to be satire.

"The cemetery was slapped with a lawsuit by New York Attorney General Letitia James earlier this year for allegedly misappropriating funds."

It would take a heart of stone not to laugh at the thought of some leftist thinking this factlet redounds, somehow, to Donald Trump.

The Cracker Emcee Refulgent said...

It’s pretty funny. That kind of ironic disingenuousness used to be a specialty of the wittier sort of journalist/editor. Now they just piss themselves while drooling uncontrollably.

Aunty Trump said...

When Howard walks into a coffee shop, first thing he does is tell everybody to shut up so he can drink his coffee in quiet like he could have at home. "Why are you people all so angry?”

iowan2 said...

Doing my daily penance and listening to msnbc. They interviewed a Democrat about the Senate/house standoff. This Dem flat out lied, and declared, Chief Justice Roberts is directed by the constitution to write the rules the Senate uses during he impeachment Trial. Not the Senate itself. If course the talking head doing the interview, just nodded in agreement. No push back.

Democrats lie, not only with impunity, but under the cover of media, complicity.

I've repeatedly insisted that Althouse should add a "Trump is like Jesus" tag. But only like Jesus.

stevew said...

"the first from Queens" strikes me as a tell that this article is not meant seriously. There have only been four impeachment attempts, and just two that have gone to the Senate for trial. Have there been other presidents in our history from Queens?

They have to be joking.

Howard said...

See, Wince have a sense of humor.

Limited blogger said...

So the Trump library won't be in Queens?

Jim at said...

Nice to see you all rushing to defend Daddy from the most mundane slight.

Mocking you fools isn't defending Trump.

n.n said...

Apparently, technically, not. It was just a partisan clique gossiping about his skin, his hair, and that his mommy dresses him funny. It was a colorful peachment, out of season, nothing more.

Bailey Yankee said...

Trump lived in Queens till he was 4. His parents are buried in XYS cemetary. XYZ cemetary is being sued for financial reasons....I couldn't get further, sorry. What's the story about again?

Nichevo said...

I find him more Jehovah-like, or if you are of a pagan temperament, either jovial or saturnine by turns. He would have fine upstanding demigod children, and his paramours' affections would be well rewarded, unless they turned on him, in which case they would probably be turned into newts.

No others from Queens. Closest historical figure of note might have been DeWitt Clinton.

Spiros said...

"A bill of attainder (also known as an act of attainder or writ of attainder or bill of penalties) is an act of a legislature declaring a person or group of persons guilty of some crime and punishing them, often without a trial."

There are four elements for a typical bill of attainder: (1) it identifies the victim by name (TRUMP!!!!); (2) it recited his actions which the Legislature felt deserved punishment (QUID PRO QUO and abuse of Congress); (3) it contained a declaration of guilt (hang the MF'er); and (4) it prescribed the punishment (removal from office). So does Mr. Trump have a slam dunk case?

I started my career on a community newspaper. We were very big on finding the local angle. This gave me a chuckle.
