As a frequent traveler to Japan in my younger years, I've seen my fair share or noh and kabuki. I quite enjoy it actually. I can watch real kabuki on vimeo and hulu. Why would I settle for Washington kabuki? There isn't even any singing!

This is all so silly and pointless.

That's what they want you to do. I rather ignore adults behaving like children.

A Bernie Bro literally hunted down Republican representatives, shot them and Capitol police defending them, and put one of the representatives in the hospital. I didn't see this much worry for protecting our Democracy then. And since they already suggested removing two democratically elected Senators for daring to do what Democrats have done in 2017, 2005, and 2001; I don't think they really care about Democracy. They want to lower the bar for impeachment and insurrection; that's on them. Don't whine to me later.

Banana republic Pelosi Schitt show.

The hack press HID Antifa violence and destruction - called it "mostly peaceful"
after the democrat party egged on Antifa's creation.
Hack press hid ALL of Joe Biden's corruption..
At this point I wish the D's would have let Bloomberg win.

on team -D - the most corrupt insiders rise to the top.

First President to be impeached twice.

Both times, for calling for an investigation into the crimes committed by Democrats.

It does have the benefit of getting some additional masks to drop. Last I saw, so far 9 Republicans out of 190 voted to impeach. (Naturally, not a single Democrat opposed yet).

Knowing who those 9 are is valuable information for whenever the hell we figure a way out of this.

West Texas Intermediate Crude said...

I'm getting up in years, and for the past decade figured I would die before our whole system crashes.
Over the past 2 months, I have become convinced that at the rate of current deterioration, I'll see the current system crash and the rise of its replacement.
I don't know what the replacement will look like, but I'm optimistic that good old American know-how and ingenuity will save the day and we and our descendants will ultimately be OK.
In the interim, it's in my interest to hasten the the current crash. I'm not in much of a position to play an active role, but if they call me for jury duty, for example, I might not be what I seem.

Very few Republicans voting to impeach. Fancy Nancy reviewed the National Guard before entering the Capitol as one of her duties as a member of the ruling Triumvirate.

West Texas Intermediate Crude said...

Sprezz-
You must be new around here (i.e., on planet earth) if you think that the current tomfoolery in Congress will make PDJT do less of what you consider "nutty."
After they impeach him for the second time, Pelosi and Schumer will give him a wedgie.
That'll really get his attention.

Inga said...

It’s good to see the courage of 10 Republicans.

Leland said...

re narciso at 3:13pm

Question the election and beheld for impeachment and insurrection. Submit a bill to do away the method of election; no big deal.

I read the bill, and it is an incomplete mess. I think I could argue that it simply repeats other parts of the US Constitution, including the electoral college. It certainly doesn't "abolish the electoral college", yet it does claim electors will vote while not defining "electors".

Section 5 negates all the previous sections by allowing Congress to change when, where, and how elections are carried out including who can even be on a ballot (so much for sections 2 and 3 of the same amendment).

Biff said...

I don't think I have the words to express the contempt I feel for these sanctimonious clowns and their 15% (or lower) approval rating.

I've got to think that any Republican who votes to impeach or convict is probably finished in elected office. The exceptions might be: Liz Cheney and Susan Collins.

Don't you listen? It is the first step in unity and reconciliation. Now, which is it going to be for you- reconciliation or a reeducation camp?

"Both times, for calling for an investigation into the crimes committed by Democrats."

If that's what it takes to get impeached, they're gonna have to impeach him about a hundred times more.

MayBee said...

Who would have thought the Democrats would vote to impeach the same man twice in less than 12 months?

Jersey Fled said...

Pelosi does know that it takes a 2/3 majority in the Senate to convict, doesn't she?

alan markus said...

Wonder why this Congress is willing to risk inciting civil unrest or goad Trump into going nuclear? I mean, the Democrats seem to be experts at projection - whatever motives they ascribe to other people are usually what they want to do.

With the inauguration being a week from today, it's as if they are needing some huge distraction to overshadow the opportunity to have a peaceful transition of power.

I am guessing that they know that Biden can't give an inauguration speech without falling apart verbally and/or pissing/shitting his pants. I think they were running the clock - Inauguration Day may be too much too soon if it does indeed become apparent that Biden is unfit for office. Of course, with the current events, they can say, "well, so was Trump. Republicans refused to go 25th Amendment, impeachment was only viable option."

Just spit balling here. Something huge is about to go down.

Yancey Ward said...

The "Why" is easy- Pelosi is handing the Republicans a tantō and it looks like about 10 of them in the House disemboweled themselves already.

The American people should not be afraid of violent loons, like Trump and his followers. The ones who attacked the Capitol will pay for their crimes and Trump will be held responsible for goading them into it.

MayBee said...

So, one week before the inauguration of President Joe Biden, the Congressional Democrats are disrupting the orderly transfer of power in this country by Impeaching Trump (Again!) for...disrupting the orderly transfer of power?

I find myself thinking that getting impeached twice by this crew actually may be a badge of honor.

Pelosi ebaying commemorative pens again?

You guys see the dems somberly march the 1st impeachment articles over to the senate? Shakespearean, pretty darn funny! Talk about tour motley crew. The one with tennis shoes my favorite. They probably do better with costumes this time. First time simply dress rehearsal.

If McConnell kicks it out quickly, is there time for a third try? Third times a charm, right?

Wrong on both counts. The people you think are afraid aren't the people you're thinking of.

oops, wrong thread.

FullMoon said...

U.S.—Media outlets from coast to coast praised President Trump today after he accepted the results of the 2020 election in a relatively timely fashion. Even CNN pointed out that it took Trump way less time to accept the results than it has two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“You’ve got to give Trump credit here,” said Chris Cuomo during a segment of his popular show on CNN last night. “Sure, he might be literally the worst president we’ve ever seen, but at least he’s willing to accept a democratic election...UNLIKE SOME PEOPLE.”

CNN then cut to an interview from last week in which Hillary Clinton once again claimed that the 2016 election was stolen by the Russians.

“It’s amazing that she still hasn’t accepted the results,” Donald Trump said in a blurry video he put out on Twitter. “I DID! I accepted the results today! That’s because I’m a winner. Even when I lose I’m a winner. And let me tell you this: this election was sto—”

But the video ended abruptly as someone from offscreen grabbed the camera and turned it off.

Skeptical Voter said...

Oh Inga! Keep on pitching that codswallop.

In the meantime the Pelosi led House of Representatives has become The Delta House fraternity in the movie Animal House. Who know that underneath all that viciouisness Pelosi was actually a frat boy? I believe that the appropriate line from the movie is, "This calls for a stupid and pointless gesture" or words to the effect. And Bluto (the future Senator Blutarski/ aka John Kerry) and the other Delta boys yelled, "And yeah, we're just the house to do it." And the House of Representatives was just the House to do it today.

As for what I think---meh. Now some of the dimwits in the domed building on the Potomac may be planning a bill of attainder to bar Trump from ever running again. You know what and whom they fear most by what they do. The Bad Orange Man still has many of them shaking in their Depends.

mockturtle said...

These people have NO IDEA just how much I hate them. And no, I won't watch or listen to our President being impeached. Nor will I obey any of their mandates nor listen to even one of their speeches. And it's not just about Trump. It's about the fact that, in one week, a 'riot' was set up to bring him [and our country] down. And we shall not forget!

If any GOP did it, they did it to keep their seats. Peter Meijer just took over Justin Amash's seat, so I'm not surprised he went along with it.

Liz Cheney did It because she wants to be head of the Establishment party.

Joe Smith said...

Nancy has always had her granny-panties in a wad over Trump.

My theory is, she's always had the biggest balls in DC, including the male politicians, until Trump came to town.

She doesn't like being a beta male.

Impeachment would hurt Trump's influence over the GOP establishment, but that isn't the source of his influence. Impeachment will only solidify that.

Temujin said...

The first impeachment was bullshit. This one is purely vindictive bullshit and nothing else. And that tells you all you need to know about Our Awful Leaders. Small, corrupt, sniveling, lying, compromised people. Aside from a handful of them, you would not hire any of these people to be a part of your own business. They are wholly bought and paid for by either China or Big Tech and care about nothing other than gaining and keeping as much power and money as they can.

A government of the people? Please. This entire government apparatus needs to be under a Term Limit. We're talking from State Dept. to DOJ on down. That and getting rid of unlimited ballot mailings/harvestings is the only way to clean this thing up.

Michael K said...

Fred Upton, MI

That son of a bitch was responsible for the incandescent light ban when Bush was in office. The GE and Sylvania companies were tired of selling and making a common everyday product with low profits. So, they got this asshole to propose a ban. That sent all light bulb manufacturing to China and we got years of toxic CFL bulbs (Actually corkscrews) until sanity recently started creeping back. I stockpiled incandescent bulbs to last a lifetime and now they are appearing in stores again.

We can disagree without tearing each other apart."

She voted to impeach based on false claims. Just who is tearing who apart, Dan?

Careful. Dems are pretty good at planning for the next election, and maybe the one after that. To wit, they just started a civil war in the GOP, who will be jockeying to primary the fuck out of one another for a couple of years.

It's what comes a little farther down the line, or the non-obvious implications of certain actions that they fail to consider adequately in their plans. And of course in the digital age, things can move pretty quick, but pretty sure they have a clear idea of how they intend to win the next couple elections.

Jim at said...

If any GOP did it, they did it to keep their seats.

Maybe some. But Newhouse and Herrera-Beutler will be shown the door. They'll either be primaried or lose in the general due to lack of turnout.

They represent the two most conservative districts in Washington state. Huge Trump and Culp support. They're toast.

Michelle said...

I very rarely comment here, but very much enjoy the commentary. I watched a bit of the hearing and it wasn’t Nancy Pelosi in the speaker chair (at least in the parts I watched), but everyone was calling the woman sitting there “Madam Speaker”. I cannot find any explanation of who was presiding as Speaker today and why it wasn’t Pelosi. Can anyone here explain the process? I would have thought she would want to be front and center for this.

Leland said...

I'm in Crenshaw's district. I suspect he's figured this out:

Careful. Dems are pretty good at planning for the next election, and maybe the one after that. To wit, they just started a civil war in the GOP

He's trying to defuse what the Dems are trying to do. I'm sure he's had to swallow worse things, but there is no point giving Dems more votes when they are promising to remove all forms of dissent, free speech be damned. He's dealing with what he has today, and Liz Cheney isn't going anywhere for 2 years. He's simply prioritizing.

Browndog said...

Surrogates. The Senate allows them too. Standard practice for 200 years.

Vance said...

Did Steve Scalise stand up, pull off his shirt, and ask Democrats to impeach every Democrat who called for violence that lead directly to "this scar here, and this one here, and this bullet wound?"

If not, why not? Joined by Rand Paul, of course. We all know how much Democrats hate violence aimed at politicians after all.... right Inga? You and your party absolutely adore it when Republicans are targeted and shot and so forth.

I didn't realize this was such a right wing site, I probably should have guessed though I don't read the ones I know are jaded by already reading the ones that are jaded,I just skip over,I know the rap!. Yup lot of Jimson Weed in the water I guess.. It only takes 2/3 of Senators who "show up" to convict, so for those who don't want to be accountable they just don't show up. Say only 20 do, then it only takes what 12 and a half or so(you do the math I only made it to 3rd grade :) Already had 10 in House with Cheney as the big gun. Repub's done with trump, Moscow Mitch is glad they're impeaching don,he's pissed cause trump lost Georgia for him and that's all Mitch cares about he don't need trump now. he'll never be back, he's dead to financial world, banks and foreigners and battling SDNY in the courts till he's dead. Pissed at IVANKA cause she wants to save her Rep by going to inaugaration . Must be enjoyable around those family table dinners huh? I'm still waiting for my next Socialist $2000 g's.Wonder how many the R's sending theirs back cause you know Socialism! I'll wager NONE! lets go folks lets get the serfs some bucks. gonna get me some new false teeth! Me and my wife..(cheap ones) they only got to last for a little while at my age :)

This is so common. I spent years in local and sate politics in California, back before it went looney. We would work to get some new, outsider, candidate for city council. Once elected, they made new friends. The reform group in our local politics collapsed after that.

“The biggest gap in this country isn’t between enlightened social justice warriors and the backward racist redneck freaks of JesusLand, it’s between those who want to continue sticking their snouts into troughs of taxpayer money, feel their own grifts are sacred birthrights above reproach and have different laws apply to them than the peasants, and those who have been made aware of the scam.”

Howard said...

April: 2/3 vote to remove congress critters. Possible but not practical.

Matt Sablan said...

"Can members of congress be impeached based on their words urging the creation of ANTIFA BROWNSHIRTS?"

-- Do you mean technically or in actuality? We have people like Maxine Waters encouraging attacks on the Cabinet, and they're fine. Pelosi encouraging uprisings against the president? Fine.

You just have to accept that the left can engage in, promote, and encourage political violence and suffer no consequences. There are two sets of rules -- conservatives/Republicans face one set (oddly enough, the set they impose on themselves and would like to impose on Democrats, that is, that political violence is bad), and one for Democrats, which is basically "whatever gets us power is good, and we can do whatever we want to keep you from power."

It's rather depressing to see this unfold quite like this. I mean, it isn't THAT surprising. But, even in my most cynical way, I thought maybe the riot at the Capitol could be a wake up call to the left that "political violence is bad." But, alas, I wonder who will be saying in 15-20 years, like Bill Ayers, that they wish they'd planted more bombs. It's a shame that political violence being acceptable has now also infected right-wing protests.

Earnest Prole said...

I would think Republicans would vote to impeach Trump solely for his idiotic fucking of the Georgia elections and handing the Senate to the enemy.

In the future all Presidents will be impeached. It will happen with such clockwork regularity that in five or 10 years no one will pay any attention.

rehajm said...

Just learned cap gains will be treated as ordinary income. No word yet how much higher the new rates will be or if there will be new brackets based on race or gender...

It's funny- Democrats claim to believe in Modern Monetary Theory which states the Fed can print infinite money without any negative consequences. Still, Democrats believe in oppressive taxation. Almost like they don't believe what they believe.

I say with zero doubt that 6 months or so prior to the 2024 election, the Democrats will start discovering outrageous new cases of completely innocent unarmed black men (who unfortunately have voluminous criminal records) slaughtered randomly by racist cops.

BLM and Antifa will be back on the streets. Violence will once more be a good thing.

Matt Sablan said...

"Was the whole Trump experience a false flag deep state operation?"

-- No, but when you have, for example, civilian leadership lying to Trump about troop deployments and organized resistance that attempts to undermine his orders, it really shows the level of complete and utter... I'm not sure what to call it... in the bureaucracy that is the government. Trump made a fatal error in thinking that the vast labyrinth of the bureaucracy was just there to punch a clock or to follow the Executive Branch's orders. Comey, for example, illegally stole documents from his work and leaked them to his neighbor or friend... and he's fine. Whoever the next Republican president is will have to remember: the very government itself will attempt to usurp your power, lie to you, and will have no qualms breaking the law with impunity to attack you.

Matt Sablan said...

(Mind you: I don't really like Trump. But, I am a fan of the elected government... actually being the government, not unelected bureaucrats. Trump was flawed in many ways. But, he was the legitimate authority and had the right and expectation *that his own staff would not lie to him about troop deployments or steal from their employers to undermine him.* If Biden is showed this same level of disloyalty, I will be surprised and equally displeased. Biden will be inaugurated as president; he deserves to have a working staff and government. But, there's really no fear of a mass government attempt to undermine the Biden administration, is there?)

The Cracker Emcee Refulgent said...

Dems and Media have tormented and attacked Trump since before he was elected. They never let up. This is a joke and proves how unhinged they are.

"We can disagree without tearing each other apart."

Civility bullshit.

Cheney made her choice. Her choice was to knife the President in the back on his way out the door. If that's not "tearing each other apart" than what is?

Yet Crenshaw directs his plea for civility away from her and towards the President's supporters. Poor decision.

Trump made a fatal error in thinking that the vast labyrinth of the bureaucracy was just there to punch a clock or to follow the Executive Branch's orders

Oh, I agree. What Harry Truman said of Eisenhower, When contemplating General Eisenhower winning the Presidential election, Truman said, “He’ll sit here, and he’ll say, ‘Do this! Do that!’ And nothing will happen. Poor Ike—it won’t be a bit like the Army. He’ll find it very frustrating.”

The first time Trump was allowed a defense. The second time, not. Curfew in Washington. Streets blocked. US faces "insurrection." Inauguration to take place in hiding. Then, Unity. Yay.

In fact, the dems can't convict, so they'll lose again. Just like Biden lose lose. Kamel didn't even make it to primaries. The dem voters are all like Howard.

Really?

I never made a Twitter Account.

I am making a Gab account right now.

It will be interesting to see if you are right. If Trump takes to Gab and once again is able to reach millions of followers without the media filter then the last 2 weeks of Open Fascism by his enemies will have backfired.

I want to help Trump succeed. He is a nice guy.

Because I don't want a new leader. They will not be nice. They will be necessary. But not nice.

Convicting Trump is up to the Senate republicans.

Who would have thought the Democrats would vote to impeach the same man twice in less than 12 months?

Remove the blinders. Democrats would do this on a weekly basis, if it didn’t require them to work.

Might look quite different by the time it gets to Senate.

This is one boomer that can’t. I would like to, but witnessing what has happened to them, the politicization/weaponizing of them, I can’t, in good conscience, do that. Even though I know I have in the past and fervently hope to at some point in the future.

Clyde said...

I'm not seeing anything about Trump's statement this evening. It was probably the most statesmanlike he's been in four years, urging his supporters to be calm and decrying violence. If he'd made that statement earlier, we probably wouldn't be in this situation. However, I would say at this point, it's probably too little, too late to avert what is coming. Listening to the Democrat garbage people accusing all Trump supporters of being white supremacists and domestic terrorists is not going to have anyone singing Kumbaya. They may think they are holding the high hand. They may be surprised when all the cards are played.

You must have quite a bit of 3 AM experience. Emptying bed pans and all.

rcocean said...

Oh, its Tuesday. Must be time for another Trump impeachment. This time the Pelosi and the RINO's didn't even pretend to have a "High Crime and Misdemeanor" as defined by the Constitution.

Weak Kneed Mitch put out his usual "Hey don't blame me, I'm on your side but..." press release stating there is no time for a fair trial, so the whole thing is a waste of time. He mentioned that the shortest impeachment trail latest 21 days, and Trump will be gone in 7 days.

I was hoping some honest D's and independents would realize how power mad and arrogant Pelosi and Schumer were, and vote against them, but it looks like the Blue states and the liberal Congressional Districts will keep voting D - no matter what their representatives do or say.

They are clownish, dangerous, sheep. Like all liberals/leftists.

Browndog said...

Half of Impeachments of the President of the United States, from it's inception, have occurred under Nancy Pelosi.

This week the House will be (again) discussing and voting on articles of impeachment against President Trump. I will vote against these articles in order to swiftly ensure the House gets back to doing the people’s work instead of wasting time on political stunts.

rcocean said...

Lynn Cheney after supporting the vote fraud has now voted to impeach Trump despite having 95% of the R caucus vote the other way. Its not clear whether she is planning to change parties and run as a D Senator, or is so deluded she believes stabbing Trump and pissing in the face of 74 million R voters will be her pathway to R Presidency or Senatorship.

Biden stole the election - but the D's and RINO"s are masters at changing the subject and people just let them. This is the Charlottesville Lie all over again.

There are some people who believe that. They're all stupid and/or misinformed.

rcocean said...

we've had 4 impeachments of US presidents. The first two impeachments took 228 years. The last 2 under Pelosi took 2 years. Pelosi and the D's have established the precedent. "High Crimes and misdemeanors" means anything Congress wants it to mean.

A president can now be removed and thrown out of office for anything, as long as 50.1% of the House and 67% of the Senate want it. BTW, where is Bush? Why isn't he criticizing this abuse of the Presidency. Oh that's right, he only cares about "The Country" when the Republicans are to blame or its illegal aliens.

I’m so excited about the efforts at reconciliation by the Democrats that I will be inviting all my Democrat friends over for a party - just as soon as a get the Claymores laid.

Eric Swallwell, CCP asset, spoke for Inga in Congress today.

rcocean said...

I can remember Jerry Ford, writing editorials and calling up Congressman during Clinton's impeachment, because "The office of the Presidency" was too important to be tarnished by a trial over Clinton's perjury.

But it seems, that no former President cares anymore. They'll probably go back to caring when Biden is in office.

Biden calls for unity
Biden calls McConnell to ask for a dual track impeachment trial and cabinet officer confirmation.
