Trump and the Squad

            President Donald Trump is in trouble with the Leftists again, and they are condemning him. However, his Republican support has increased mildly. The President tweeted the following on Sunday, July 14, 2019. 

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at) now loudly…

…and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most power Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how….

…it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements.

            Democrats are loudly proclaiming that Trump is a racist for his tweets, but I do not see any mention of race in any of the tweets. I cannot see anything wrong with what he said – other than the fact that some of the squad members were born in the United States. However, Trump was not finished.

So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country and who, in addition, hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion. Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, “RACIST.” Their disgusting language….

… and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged. If the Democrat Party wants to continue to condone such disgraceful behavior, then we look even more forward to seeing you at the ballot box in 2020!

            The Democrats took Trump’s tweets and tried to destroy him with them, but they seem to be destroying themselves. Do you think that this is Trump’s plan? The Democrats are certainly looking silly in their attempt to take Trump down, but the Democrat-majority House does have a lot of power.

            On Tuesday July 16, 2019, Democrat members of the House fell all over themselves in an attempt to pass a resolution condemning Trump’s controversial comments aimed at the four freshman congressman. The resolution passed, but Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made a real fool of herself when she began breaking House rules to get it passed. 

            Later Representative Al Green introduced Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. He hopes to force a vote on it later this week. He introduced impeachment articles because Trump “brought the high office of the President of the United States contempt, ridicule, disgrace and disrepute; has sown seeds of discord among the people of the United States.” 

            We are sure to hear more from the likes of crazy Maxine Waters and members of the squad – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashid Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar. However, they all might have to explain how bringing “contempt, ridicule, disgrace and disrepute” to Office of the President can meet the requirements set forth in the Constitution for impeachment.

            Article 2 Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states the reasons for impeachment: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” 

            A simple majority vote in the U.S. House of Representatives is all that is needed to impeach, so it is possible for the Democrats there to vote to impeach Donald Trump. However, they will have to answer to why they think he has committed “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

The charge of high crimes and misdemeanors covers allegations of misconduct by officials, such as perjury of oath, abuse of authority, bribery, intimidation, misuse of assets, failure to supervise, dereliction of duty, unbecoming conduct, refusal to obey a lawful order, chronic intoxication, and tax evasion. 

            I guess that Democrats could claim that Trump behaved badly, but I believe it would be a stretch to do so. I hope that American citizens would see through their efforts and reward them by voting them out of office. A vote for impeachment does not remove a President from office. Bill Clinton was impeached by the House for lying under oath, but he was not removed from office. It takes a super majority of two-thirds votes in the Senate to remove a President from office. No one in their right mind thinks that the Republican-majority Senate will remove Trump for office.

            So the question goes back to Trump’s purpose for the tweets. Was he just trolling when he suggested that anyone that hates the United States could go back to where they come from? Was he trying to stir up more Trump mania to show how truly foolish the Democrats are? So far Trump has been running circles around the Democrats and keeping them off balance. What will happen now?
