In 6 days, not counting today, it will be January 1st, 2020. I know, I can’t believe it either.
As 2019 fades, for the day after Christmas the President has tweeted aka whined, 7 times, and retweeted aka posted someone else’s whining, 4 times.
“Look, the House is supposed to do all of this work on witnesses and documents BEFORE they send the articles over to the Senate, not to call in new witnesses, go through new documents – that work is supposed to be done in the House.” @KatiePavlich @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats said they wanted to RUSH everything through to the Senate because “President Trump is a threat to National Security” (they are vicious, will say anything!), but now they don’t want to go fast anymore, they want to go very slowly. Liars!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
Brad Blakeman “I happen to believe as a lawyer that the charges are defective, they don’t meet the Constitutional standard of high crimes and misdemeanors, so I would like to see a Motion to Dismiss. At least 51 Republican Senators would agree with that-there should be no trial.”— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
Nancy Pelosi’s District in California has rapidly become one of the worst anywhere in the U.S. when it come to the homeless & crime. It has gotten so bad, so fast – she has lost total control and, along with her equally incompetent governor, Gavin Newsom, it is a very sad sight!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
“Nancy Pelosi has no leverage over the Senate. Mitch McConnell did not nose his way into the impeachment process in the House, and she has no standing in the Senate.” Brad Blakeman. Crazy Nancy should clean up her filthy dirty District & help the homeless there. A primary for N?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
I’m going to start with the bottom tweets and work my way up.
In June 2018 CA according to Ballotpedia:
In the General Election held in November of 2018:
Well. As you can see, unlike the Impeached President Trump, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, has faced primary challenges, and won.
As a reminder: A Congressional Representative has power at a federal level, not at the State Assembly level. Their job is to be the people’s voices in Washington, D.C..
In 2018 the people voted to remove the Republican majority in the House handing control of the House of Representatives to the Democratic party.
Dear Katie Pavlich,
The President was Impeached in part because he blocked documents and witnesses from partaking in the Impeachment Inquiry,
The More You Know.
Dear Brad Blakeman,
The President of the United States withheld military aid and a needed Oval Office visit from a foreign country in order to ensure that foreign country investigated a political rival and a private American Citizen and said foreign country had to announce that investigation publicly. He then attempted to cover that up, by burying a legit Whistleblower compliant. Once caught the President doubled down by adding that China should likewise investigate the same political rival,
A non-lawyer U.S. citizen that understands Impeachment is not based on criminal law.
“(they are vicious, will say anything!), but now they don’t want to go fast anymore, they want to go very slowly. Liars!” Ha. Says the man that mocked a disabled reporter, calls names, threatens States, and calls those of us, myself included, that do not support him, “human scum,” twice.
According to the Washington Post fact checkers of President Donald Trump’s false or misleading claims, the President has lied or mislead 15,413 times, since he was sworn into office.
2017 1,999 false or misleading claims.
2018 5,689 false or misleading claims.
2019 7,725 false or misleading claims as of Dec. 10th, 2019.
President Trump moved on from whinging about the Impeachment process and Democrats, to whine about foreign policy, the tweet was deleted for a typo, but as they say the Internet is Forever.
If =’s Of.
Russia, Syria, and Iran are killing, or on their way to killing, thousands of innocent civilians in Idlib Province. Don’t do it! Turkey is working hard to stop this carnage.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
*The New York Times via Reuters calls this tweet a “warning” to Russia, Syria, and Iran.
Russian and Syrian forces according to the article have intensified bombardment of Idlib, the last significant revel pocket in Syria. Bashar al-Assad, the President of Syria has vowed to recapture it.
At a summit in September leaders of Turkey, Russia, and Iran, agreed to “de-escalate” conflict in Idlib after a months-long campaign that forced at least 500,000 civilians to flee. With diplomacy on a Syria peace settlement stalled, the de-escalation deal has been unravelling of late.”
For what it’s worth: A warning, “Don’t do it!” is how I talk to my dog, or cats. I mean honestly, and exactly what has he warned them against? Again, “Don’t do it!” means what exactly?
Given that he himself greenlighted Turkey to invade Syria and kill the Kurds, I’m pretty sure, Russia, Iran, and Syria, are not shaking in their boots.
*In the New York Times defense, the article itself is by “Reuters,” so they aren’t tech. calling it a warning Reuters is or maybe both of them are?*
It’s not a warning, it’s a tweet, FFS.
In his last tweet so far for Thursday morning, he moves right back to bitching about the Democrats. (Note that the last tweet on his feed currently at the time of writing, it was the replacement “warning,” to foreign countries.)
Despite all of the great success that our Country has had over the last 3 years, it makes it much more difficult to deal with foreign leaders (and others) when I am having to constantly defend myself against the Do Nothing Democrats & their bogus Impeachment Scam. Bad for USA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
Yeah, it’s the Democrats that have made it more difficult for the Victim of the United States of America.
Impeachment is not a Scam, as the President is now Impeached. And no, the Articles of Impeachment do not need to be sent to the Senate to make it so. They voted, on two, both of those Articles passed the House making him the 3rd President of the United States impeached by that branch, the Articles move to the Senate in order for the Senate to judge if the Impeached President deserves removal from Office.
This post will be updated within reason.
This is an Open Thread.
I hope each of you Blenders had a wonderful Christmas day.
