    Nancy Pelosi Has Trump Right Where She Wants Him

    I understand the idea of letting your enemies fail due to their own weaknesses.
    But will this work???

    I guess it's all she has...The Dems are now in a middle of a lovers spat with the new Brazile/Clinton reveal...although, others are saying this is typical and old-hat. (besides...you take the money, you sign the paper...)
    And they really don't have any inspiring message or a unified base (lots of wanderers are in the Dems corner, don't do lock-step well)

    There you go...
    If you don't have the stuff...wait for the players to fuck up and fumble.
    Any given Sunday. :rolleyes:

    Maybe the Congress should reign in the ability of the President from being able to attack foreign countries without getting an approval from Congress to go to war.

    Revoke the War Powers Act...go back to straight Constitution for now. Besides, it would put some responsibility onto Congress for a change.
    But that's why the WP was done, because Congress is often NOT responsible and too slow. Things move fast in war and reality.

    I'm not sure it moves that fast. And the rules of Congress could be updated if this was a problem. Even if it was done afterwards, Congress should still have to approve of any actions.

    Pressure mounts to unmask Hill harassers

    So there a whole office dedicated to paying out harassment claims for Congress members???
    And they don't have to reveal for who...

    Your tax dollars at work :rolleyes:

    With Billions at Stake in Tax Debate, Lobbyists Played Hardball

    And this is how corruption happens...
    Not outright bribes...but "influence".
    A tweak here, a push there.

    The "old-boy" network at work and in full force...but it's not just boys...it's EVERYONE.
    And then with the revolving doors...the Congress people get their perks after they leave with cush jobs...or other ways.

    It's not about what's right for the Nation and its citizens.
    It's about what benefits those who can afford to prime the pump. Grease the rails. Pull the choke...etc and so on.
    The corporations, the PACs, the bigwigs and so on.

    And this is how Rome fell...

    And we're no better or worse than all the other "corrupt" nations on Earth.
    Just another day in the swamp.
    With new players, just poling around the same swamp.

    I'm not naive.
    I don't care if they "get theirs". I'm not a purest.
    I just care if they're doing it right or better for the NATION and the CITIZENS.

    Meanwhile...
    Congress is almost getting into fist fights

    House members Harris, Allred nearly come to blows during Pennsylvania certification debate: reports — Fox News

    There’s going to be some interesting things going on in the next day or so until the weekend
    And even more so after the weekend where leaders can plan

    Congress is in session and can do things
    Actions, laws, etc
    Even if they they’re still waiting on the inauguration

    The House is set, Pelosi already voted Speaker again

    I don’t know how fast they’ll change the Senate,
    Doubtful anytime soon, there still needs to be a sitting of the new GA Senators after any dispute put up.
    McConnell will still block anything he doesn’t like.
    He’s subdued but not changed.

    The Dems are finally angry
    The GOP are shocked but still are the same group with issues as before. (Need to go to rehab, IMHO)
    So who knows how a debate may pan out or any action taken.

    We’re in unprecedented days. (Pun intended)

    She’s lucky she only got maced
    But thank you very much for all your personal info on this video

    Step over here for all your prizes...

    Delivery by the FBI
    Bonus: your boss and company wants to speak with you
    And even more!!!

    “Stupid is as stupid does”

    Actually, the Congressmembers are very lucky they were stupid, incompetent and disorganized
    It could have been MUCH worse.

    Not that a few of them would care and actually would cheer them on.

    I fee so sorry for poor Elizabeth. Not.
    What did she expect?

    It could've been much worse for her.

    (each shell containing 28 pellets, measuring .24 diaameter),
    fired basically point blank.

    Sure, let’s wait 3 days
    He can’t hurt anything over the weekend. :rolleyes:
    Why fuck didn’t they do it today???
    Insane doesn’t have a schedule.

    House democrats plan to introduce articles of impeachment on Monday. It's like the good times of 2020 never left us

    IF you think he’s “unhinged” get him the fuck out.

    Speaker Pelosi called military chief about 'unhinged' Trump's access to nuclear launch codes — NBC News

    I tell ya, the logic of these politicians are idiocy
    Even the ones you may agree with.

    If there’s fire...you do NOT wait for a vote.
    ACT

    Even if some politicians are here, there are provisions to vote without them.
    Unless enough of those voting FOR are away

    But WTF would they go away
    A friggin National emergency just happened

    Just unreal

    Give the maniac 3 more days to do more damage and destroy any evidence (this or previous deeds)

    Unless you’re waiting for him to resign
    But he’s NOT going to do this.
    Nothing in his past or personality would make him quit.
    The man will be dragged out kickin and screaming

    I understand your frustration, but I don't see the Senate having the votes for impeachment, especially this close to Conman leaving office.

    The House & Senate members probably hauled ass out of DC fearing they might have to actually do something, transparently, on record.

    I can think of ways to remove Conman that...I should keep to myself.
