House Impeaches Trump For Abuse Of Power & Obstruction Of Congress

“This country’s end is now in sight… I hope I don’t live to see it. This is an outrage.”

As was 100% expected, the House has voted to impeach President Trump (for abuse of power), who joins Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton as the only presidents to be impeached since the adoption of the Constitution in 1788.

It all began just after midday with the following…

 “Today, as speaker of the House, I solemnly and sadly open the debate on the impeachment of the president of the United States,”  Speaker Nancy Pelosi said from the House floor shortly after noon.

“It is tragic that the president’s reckless actions make impeachment necessary. He gave us no choice.”

And ended just over eight hours later

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy closes: “He is president today, he’ll be president tomorrow and he will be president when this impeachment over.”

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) closes: “All of us feel a sense of loyalty to party. It’s what makes our two-party system function. But party loyalty must have its limits…it has become increasingly clear that the limits of partisanship have been reached and passed.”

And the result after 219 speakers from both sides of the aisle today, as most expected, all Republicans voted against impeachment, all Democrats except three voted for the first article of impeachment..

Hope reps in the senate betray him and I hope he loses the next election, so the US can go back to its usual neoliberal self and allow China to completely get hold of all our manufacturing jobs while our governments use Chinese equipment to spy on us all and introduce the Western version of Chinese credit score system. The US has had the hegemony card in its pocket for far too long, time for China to take it away from them, and they will too if the Jews really get behind them.

Rehashing the misery, saying not a word about the root cause or solution,
this makes you one sick comic.

I’m all for China and Russia becoming world leaders, I’d vote Putin as the president of the solar system actually.

TASS reports: MOSCOW, December 19. /TASS/. Konstantin Kosachev, who chairs the International Affairs Committee of the Russian parliament’s upper chamber, said the impeachment procedure of Donald Trump was the goal in and of itself for the Democratic Party, as the Senate will certainly block it. (…) “There can be no doubt that the impeachment procedure, launched by the Democrats is not about removing him from power, it is about preventing him from being re-elected. In this situation, the procedure is the goal in and of itself,” he told reporters. He said that the impeachment procedure requires support from no less… Read more »

Unless of course, the rich purchase the decision making power of most republicans-democrats and the goal is a smokescreen to make democrats look stupid, republicans look wise, and corporate media to pretend that Trump won reelection fair and square.

IMPEACH — EMPIRE USA
It started by a bunch of English rich nobility, in total secrecy, creating a slave owners paradise. Then, gradually it evolved into the most perverse form of democracy known to man, with the 51% most educated and wealthy owning 100% of the land, 100% of the wealth, 100% of the healthcare, 100% of the political power, 100% of the killer-cops and 98% of guns. And now society is so corrupt that everyone loves to be enriched upon the misery of those with less education, less wealth or less whiteness of skin.

While checking the impeachment news this morning, I was struck by the contrast between Duran’s (And other independent media’s) coverage and that of MSNBC.
They appear to exist in two different dimensions of reality. I now believe in a multiverse.
God bless America. It sure needs it.

Can we just invoke the old time duels at 20 paces, sharpened axe beheading, and other “keep your ass civil, and lawful” or we’ll take you down for being right sociopaths.
