Democratic Party aint about shit! What have I been saying!!!!

Trump impeachment vote fails overwhelmingly

The measure drew the support of 58 House Democrats.

 
 

House Democrats overwhelmingly joined Republicans on Wednesday to defeat an attempt to impeach President Donald Trump. But 58 Democrats supported the bid to consider impeachment over the objections of House Democratic leaders, who viewed the measure as a distraction in a Republican-controlled Congress.

The motion to sideline the measure — killing the effort — was approved 364-58, with four Democrats voting present.

 

The vote was forced by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), who introduced articles of impeachment describing Trump as a bigot who incites hate and has demeaned the presidency.

"Donald John Trump, by causing such harm to the society of the United States is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment, trial and removal from office," Green said on the House floor as he introduced the articles.

But Green, a seven-term, Houston-area lawmaker, said his conscience compelled him to push forward with the measure, even though he acknowledged he was unlikely to succeed.

“Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment,” Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said in a joint statement, shortly after Green introduced his articles of impeachment.

The White House quickly dismissed the effort, labeling Green and his allies "extremists."

“It’s disappointing that extremists in Congress still refuse to accept the President’s decisive victory in last year’s election," spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement. "Their time would be better spent focusing on tax relief for American families and businesses, and working to fund our troops and veterans through the holiday season rather than threaten a government shutdown.”

Pelosi and her top allies urged Democrats to help bottle up the measure during a closed-door caucus meeting on Wednesday morning.

But Green offered the proposal as a so-called privileged motion, a procedural tactic that allows a single member to force a vote. He had flirted with forcing a vote on articles of impeachment in October but backed away amid pressure from Democratic leaders at the time. Republican leaders then moved to "table" the motion, a procedural step to bottle it up indefinitely.

Green’s articles of impeachment cite Trump’s remarks in the aftermath of a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, as well as his attacks on Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) and his repeated criticism of NFL players who have protested abuses by police officers by kneeling during the national anthem.

“Friends, whether we like it or not, we now have a bigot in the White House who incites hatred and hostility,” he wrote in a letter to colleagues on Tuesday.

Wow, I've been saying that for years.  These are not your father's democrats.  What we have now in the Democrat Party is the exact same thing that is in the Republican Party, corporate puppets.

The only real difference between the two parties, is the fact that republicans can't get elected without the Racist Vote, and democrats can't get elected without the Black/minority Vote.  Otherwise, both groups are beholden to their corporate puppet masters and have no intentions of doing anything for actual Voters that vote them into office [year, after year/term, after term].

Both parties are doing nothing but colluding with each other in a 'good cop, bad cop' psych game on the voters.  

With all the Treason, Obstruction of Justice, using the position of President for personal gain, and inticing a Race War that Trump has did/is doing, members of Congress' refusal to act to remove a pathologically lying, narcissistic, treasonist, dangerous, racist, trigger-happy sociopath, from the highest political office in the land, makes them collaborteurs in his blatant disregard for the Constitution and the nation's security.

They ALL should be impreached.

Aint that the truth, when I saw how Obama was kissing corporate and Wall Street asses and spoke down on Black people and ran away from Black issues like the fukkin pussy he is, I knew we was fucked and fucked hard, he was only behaving according to what the Democratic Party was all about from the get. Hillary is exactly the same... 

The only authentic people's choice was Bernie Sanders! He will run again as a Democrat and if he becomes the Democratic nominee I guarantee another Democrat will run against him as an Independent to make sure he does not become president, but first they will rig the primary against him.

And that goes for ANYONE that have a similar platform like Sanders! 

The country is heading for total collapse in less than 10 years, the country is already 20 trillion in debt by the time Trump is done with his 2nd term the country will be way beyond 30 trillion in debt with no social security, medicaid and medicare or any type of social safety net and the assets of the whole country will be PRIVATELY OWNED by rich white people, pure OLIGARCHY and AUTHORITARIANISM.

When the world stop using the US dollar as the reserve currency because of an unstable and ruined US economy collapse will follow because the US will be unable to sell enough Treasury Bonds to borrow enough money to pay the interest on a bloating national debt, the country is being LOOTED by the TRILLIONS.  And it is deliberate! 

What's Bernie, 75 years old?? Dementia hits these fuckers in the ass by age 65 on a good day. You need a white man damn near out of the womb to handle the world's situations. Their minds get addled by age 55 if not before. Bernie will be almost 80 by the end of his first term. 80!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Biden's 75. Roosevelt was in a wheel chair in his 60's if not before. He died at age 63, April 12, 1945. Kennedy had some damn thing wrong with him. He was crumbling up like a cookie, but no one knew.

President Obama was the healthiest  and handsomest man I've seen as "president" and I've seen a FEW; putting it mildly; grey haired or otherwise. My kid's his age; in fact 3 months older. One doesn't need a "president" older than him. When a white man's 56, he already looks 80 or older, plus they're not wrapped tight at all. Racism and hatred eats 'em up and they scare the shit out of you to look at them!!!! I get the shivers everyday in front of my TV.

Cary Grant and Rock Hudson are dead. One was gay and the other accused but never confirmed. Both denied, and everyone believed. There weren't any more looking like them before they died and haven't been any more since. Two handsome white men in all of white "some kind of humanity", since they first came slaughtering to these shores, making "America Great!"

The "Smarts" department is a whole different ball game. If they were so damn smart, we wouldn't be here for them to have picked on for 400 years. They'd have picked their own damn cotton and dealt with the boll weevils (bugs).

If we were so damn smart, we wouldn't still be here kissing their flat asses, begging for this and that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Getting nothing but hatred, insults and bullets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

400 years down and some more to go until Kim Jong Un says "Fire!!" Then we're all going to look like Richard Pryor did once upon a time. It's gonna hurt!!!!
