Did anyone hear Adam Schiff's closing senate "trial" statement? it was EXCELLENT! the entire statement is available on YouTube and I suggest everyone watch it. It's the most factual and impassioned plea for sanity and justice I've heard for some time. Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Chuck Schumer, the entire House Impeachment Managers and other Democrats have spoken and acting incredibly WELL during trump's impeachment process. And with Nancy Pelosi's tearing up trump's state-of-trump campaign speech yesterday I've never been so impressed with the Democrats in my life! they need to turn up the heat, keep upstaging trump and EVEN impeach him AGAIN!

Pelosi is a national hero for finally giving trump a taste of his own medicine! trump's a coward, liar and criminal and deserving of NO RESPECT from ANYONE! no dem or independent or republican in their right mind is going to condemn Pelosi for displaying the COURAGE and integrity she demonstrated by tearing up trump's sham state-of- trump campaign speech! my only complaint is that it should've been done a LONG DAMNED TIME AGO!

Nancy Pelosi appears to prepare in advance to rip up Trump's speech The US House speaker seemed to make a small tear in some pages of the text of Donald Trump's State of the Nation address almost an hour before she ...

Its the GOP who's proven their rejection of American ideals not Pelosi. Its the GOP who covered up trump's crimes. Not Pelosi. Its the GOP who tore up the rule of law and the constitution and spit it in our faces - not Pelosi. Its the GOP who'll find themselves a broken party - ALL BECAUSE OF TRUMP'S CORRUPTION! Unless the GOP finds a way to rig more elections they'll lose government seats all over the country. I'm so proud of Pelosi right now i can't contain myself. And I'm not even a Democrat!

Every newspaper or news outlet that proclaims trump was acquitted of impeachment is misrepresenting the facts. First off, he was already impeached before the case was sent to the Senate. Second, the Senate didn't find trump innocent. There was no trial. The senate GOP refused to conduct one. And many GOP Senators publicly declared to fix the so-called "trial" in trump's favor even before it began. And trump himself did all he could to cajole, bribe, threaten, and corrupt the Republican Senators, who were to act as his jury, throughout the proceedings. The GOP in the senate just decided and agreed to violate the constitution and cover-up and dismiss trump's crimes and violate their oaths of office. So, no, trump wasn't "acquitted" of anything.

The GOP again failed to honor their oaths. First their oaths of office to honor and protect the constitution and then their oaths to be impartial jurors during the GOP led sham senate trial of trump. ALL IN THE NAME OF TRUMP! TRUMP'S A CRIMINAL and the GOP has chosen to be complicit in his crimes and engaged in a MASSIVE cover-up! the GOP has sunk to a new low; a gutter level to which even I didn't think they'd ever sink. Right now, our constitution is COMPLETELY inactive and non-functional. We have NO law governing or restricting the criminal actions of the political party in power!

Yes, The Republican Mitt Romney, when he voted to "convict" on the first impeachment article, did half of the right thing and should be commended for it. The question is - how could you vote guilty on impeachment article one and not on article two? You can make up all kinds of excuses for Trump's abuse of power but his obstruction was blatant, obvious and undeniable. Regardless of how ANYONE voted on article one, to deny guilt on article two is legally unjustifiable and thus ethically IMPOSSIBLE! Another question is - just how long is trump going to be allowed to continue his 35 year crime spree?

Trump had handed them his speech, as is the tradition. He then abruptly turned away from Pelosi refusing to shake her extended hand - as traditional decorum has always required. Pelosi, shocked by the snub, in turn took the written speech and tore it up.

Pelosi had 'dissented', being one of the most, if not the most cherished of American values and she did it when it 'mattered the most' - Trump had been 'impeached forever' ("he is a dictator" said Nadler) by the Democrats and that was the real State of the Union message to the American People.

In my opinion, Pelosi has made herself ineffectual because of this impeachment effort. I don't think I'd shake her hand either, because I think she blew it for the Democrats, not to mention the general dishonesty of the whole attempt. And, for the little it matters, in the videos I've seen, I don't think Trump even noticed her hand: it looks like he turned away as soon as he handed her the speech.

But now that he's been acquitted, perhaps everyone can move on to figuring out how to beat Trump in November, perhaps by formulating some ideas that might appeal to the voters. Figuring out how to increase the health of the environment rather than enabling its degradation, agreeing on a good health care plan, working for world peace -- that sort of stuff.

Hopefully we can now count on Pelosi to be in the forefront of such efforts now that the Schiff thing didn't pan out so well.

Pelosi didn't tear up trump's ridiculous campaign speech misrepresented as a state-of-the-union address because of any perceived hand-shake snub. she did it because the "speech" was full of lies, trump's turned the Whitehouse into a criminal cartel and the GOP turned the entire event into a re-election rally for a criminal by chanting "four more years!"

and if you think impeachment was "dishonest" you weren't listening. trump was guilty as hell of not only these crimes but DOZENS of crimes! not to mention his pathological lying, bullying, incompetence and spewing of obscenities and insults and every opportunity. there's NOTHING more dangerous than having a criminal like trump in the whitehouse who has no respect for the constitution or the rule of law!

As a matter of facts, Trump was not being tried for any crimes, let alone dozens of crimes.

The first twenty minutes of his speech was about economic "good news", mostly true with some exaggerations and half-truths. Check out CNN's "facts check" for their take on the whole speech. We may not like the economy getting better for various reasons, my own main reason being that the "good economy" is built in great part from the continuing destruction of nature, but the economy is growing by most measures. We may not like it that the lower unemployment figures, with all time records set for black and brown, is largely based on an increase in low paying jobs, but unemployment is down. By the way, here's a video of Pelosi pre-ripping the pages so she'll be ready for her big moment.

I called the attempt "dishonest", because it was the culmination of three years of trying to "get" Trump for having the audacity to beat Clinton. You tend to confirm that by saying, "... trump was guilty as hell of not only these crimes but DOZENS of crimes! not to mention his pathological lying, bullying, incompetence and spewing of obscenities and insults and every opportunity. there's NOTHING more dangerous than having a criminal like trump...". In other words, he's obviously guilty as hell and has been from the start, the trick is to try to find some actual crime. And this, of course, is what they failed to do.

So now the Democrats have to decide if they want to "spend good money after bad" by continuing the "Trump bad!" exercise or move on to making a case to how they will do better for the country.

You can't be serious. It's a bipartisan clown show meant to keep people from coming together to remove the whole thieving lying war mongering lot of them from power.


That display of the whole chamber giving the thug Juan Guaido a standing ovation was the icing on the clown cake. We live in a make believe system that serves the 1% at the expense of everyone else no matter who is in power. There are no heroes in Washington DC.

Reply to Lois Gagnon:   New Content

you're misinterpreting my article. it was entirely in reference to trump's impeachment. trump is a criminal and MUST be removed. and the Democrats did a wonderful job in that pursuit. and Pelosi's act of defiance was an EXCELLENT symbolic gesture. i say BRAVO to the Democrats in this regard.

otherwise i agree completely with your comment. you don't think I know the Democrats are corrupt? I founded a new and innovative philosophy called equalism just to emphasize the fact that the elite on both the right and left have been dividing us for centuries just so they can maintain power over US ALL!

the intent of equalism is to UNITE the non-fascists on both the right and left against the fascists, the predators on BOTH SIDES! you're invited, as are ALL non-predators to watch my equalism channel on youtube to learn more. just do a YT search for c. j. macq or I can send you some links. WE CAN AND MUST UNITE to fix this mess the elite have made for us!

Something has occurred to me. When Trump is defeated in November, he will not retire gracefully. That is totally beyond him. Once out of office, he will insist on being addressed as 'Mr. President', as many of his predecessors have been, and are. Plus, he will continue to tweet, in his by now 'signature' form of self-delusion. This will keep his 'base' riled up, ready to support him no matter what he does. He will also hit the 'rally trail', continuing to make well compensated 'appearances' in the deepest parts of his 'domain'. He will continue this until he is no longer capable of it physically, and will then rely on Twitter until his attendants realize he has deteriorated so far that he will have become an embarrassment, which will be beyond his capability to realize, as it clearly already is. He will not just go away - not at all.

Goodness gracious, what an idea! You mean he'll become a "Hillary II"? But perhaps they can become friends, like Bill Clinton and George Bush did, jointly show up at aircraft carrier dedications and the like.

I couldn't agree more. trump is totally paranoid and unstable. but if he's removed from the Whitehouse in November he's facing NUMEROUS criminal and civil suits as a "civilian" and may very well end up in prison or broke and completely humiliated. he'll lose all creditability to everyone except his most fanatical and delusional cult members. if he's allowed to steal another election many of these legal suits will expire due to the statute of limitations. this is one reason why the 2020 election is so important to trump. I believe trump actually ran for president in the first place just to avoid and evade all these court cases piling to against him.

And check out this new OEN article. Besides what I called the "dishonesty" of the impeachment, the whole Russia bashing theme was, in my opinion, disgraceful and dangerous.

Actually, I'm a Sanders supporter, just like I was in 2016. Although this time around, I'll probably vote for whichever Democrat wins the nomination, unlike in 2016 when I ended up voting for Jill Stein. Of course, I reserve the right to change my mind about that, but at present none of the candidates sounds all that bad to me.

While I have your attention, may I ask which statement(s) I made in the post you answered with, "everything you just wrote is incorrect and unworthy of any other response from me," you disagreed with?

(As for "...starting to sound...", I've been consistent in my contempt for the "Russiagate" Democrat/media blitz that accused the Trump campaign of colluding with Russia to influence the 2016 election since the day it began. The conclusions of the Mueller report proved my position correct. In my opinion, the impeachment for Trump's low level sleaze in re. Ukraine was just a continuation of Russiagate and had zero credibility for me.)
