So when is the official Impeachment stuff happening...Like the official decision...before or after Christmas?

The point of the midnight layover last night was to ensure Mitch McConnell can't just toss it out of the Senate in one day. All they did today was ammend Donald J. Trump to Donald John Trump. Then voted.

The full House vote will drag out a few days so that the Christmas recess is the day after they finally vote. This way, they can have the sheeple sitting around for the holidays trying to convince people the president is on the way out.

It's all mind games. Nothing coming here.

I've stayed away from this chit because the claims and all the theatrics of the dims and their supporters are just mind numbing, but the fact that the dims conducted a focus group on the language for the articles of impeachment says everything about the legitimacy of it. If Trump is breaking any laws, that's the language you use

Tax payer money at work....

Mitch McConnell guaranteed no removal, basically DOA -  but the GOP will dog & pony the process to make the Dems own it .

This is what it boils down to in the end. If there was a clear crime here, you wouldn't need all these career bureaucrats and "legal scholars" to explain it. The problem for the Dems is that to verify the bribery, you need to hear from the victim and Ukraine has been pretty firm in that they were not being extorted/bribed/quid pro quo'ed (or whatever phrasing the focus group said was most palatable for the sheep this week).

this is why we will never actually be free, nor ever move on from the 2 party system until the govt ultimately collapses under it's own weight of Debt.

 

Quote

“The next Democrat president of the United States must be impeached,” Levin declared on Thursday’s broadcast of “Hannity” ― before Democrats had even selected their presidential nominee to take on Trump in 2020. House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against Trump on Tuesday.

“Not to get even,” Levin claimed. “Not because we are at their low level, because the Republicans can’t live under one Constitution when the Democrats live under another Constitution and it’s the only way we’re going to stop them.”

That's been a given since Trump was elected. I'm surprised Moscow Mitch would even hold a trial.

 

Government waste, over and over and over. Been going hard line like that for close to 10 years already.

Until we can find a way to get money largely out of politics it will always be this way. There will always be a fight for influence and power but regardless of our two party system the three separate branches of gov "kind" of works but that dynamic has changed quite a bit in recent yrs with big corporations and all the lobbying influence. Some Dems ( Bernie, AOC etc. ) have the right idea there but the total snowflake policies coming out of the party & the influence it has in academia, corporate america and the media is just plain awful. 

Another HUGE part of the problem is the way the government as a whole spends tax payer money with no responsibility of being held accountable and congressional oversight committees are a sleep or complicit.  

There needs to be performance  laws in place where members of congress could actually incur debt for failures then they'd be a lot more careful with how they spend because it's not their money they spend recklessly. Printing money out of thin air isn't gonna work forever. It's forcing the system to consolidate centralized creating monopolies of power and gobbling up the middle class. 

At the very least our gov should be intensified to perform fiscally responsible in a balanced way i.e. not total corporate cut throat but not wasteful either. Term limits would also be a good start. I don't think voting is enough of a deterrent but we still do need people with experience so it's a double edged sword balancing act again here. 

If we're gonna be spending all this money in investigations let's start with congress. How is it all these politicians suddenly become millionaires when all they do is stand around in a room & yack about bills many of which we don't want & they didn't even read let alone ponder repercussions & they're all written by lawyers/ lobbyists to mainly benefit power players. i.e. plutocracy government by the wealthy and for the wealthy. 

Big players with major political influence like big tech, Soros, Kock bros etc. that influence has grown WAY too powerful and needs to be lessened on every level in society because they don't have people's best interest in mind everyone is a just a commodity to them & chaos is their ladder. It's pretty hard for regular folks with jobs to compete & form large enough groups to combat destructive policies that benefit them and the kind of brain washing  influence these kinds of people have. It's completely run amok.

This over and over again.

Some start out alright or with the best intentions, but they all end up cronies to people buying their influence, or hungry for power.

Or just bat **** crazy with their ideas left or right politically.

The chit u don't see or hear about > Republicans - if you dems vote to impeach, Schiff and the Bidens will be subpeonaed by tne Senate

and Trump will not be removed anyway -

 

 Remember there are 31 dems sitting in red states, so if they vote to impeach, .. they're history -

-as of today, 10 to 12 have said they will not vote to impeach

Hence, Pelosi telling them to vote their conscience .

 

* Tuesday > HGC vote (gateway to Senate)-

Wonder if the usual suspects will show up complaining that Schiff and the Bidens defied the subpoenas and didn't show up? No, actually I don't. I know they won't give a chit.

This is sooo fkng stupid on so many levels. How people like him get elected is beyond me. 

I was literally cringing when Joyce Beatty was questioning Zuck at his hearing. I almost even felt bad for Zuck. Almost

Joyce talking about Facebook "ruined the lives of black people". < LMFAO

It's a FREE service you dummy! ANYONE can use it but even then let's play along & say what she said was even remotely true. 

Staying OFF of Facebook might actually save some black lives because it's a dumpster of $hitpost tribalism & very depressing lol

There have been studies that show social media is very addictive & algorithms along with data mining of personal preferences and personality traits are the business they're in. Amazon , google, Facebook etc. knows far more about you & predictive behavior & they're targeting people to get them even more obsessed to spend more time on their platforms. It's literally like a drug & not healthy at all.  That has an impact on mental health and is correlated to a rise in depression & whatever dopamine spikes people get from these platforms lesson over time so even the tribal echo chambers & feeling of a community they live in is not offset in fact it makes people become more entrenched & closed off to opposing views.

Directives of the day for the sheep herders: Relate the sham impeachment of Trump to the justified impeachment of Clinton. You can tell it was on the 4AM directives sheet because you couldn't get any of them to say the words Clinton impeachment out loud til this morning.

Schiff for brains and Nadler both were referencing it this morning with Stupidnopolis. They both used the word "blackmail" also. These focus groups are sending them up Chit's Creek without a paddle. You can't keep upgrading the phrasing just because it was falling flat on the free-thinkers. First it was rigging our democracy, then it was extortion, then bribery, now it's blackmail. lol.. Disregard that those are all different things if you'rea TDS victim. Next week it'll be "kidnapping", I'm sure.

Ted Cruz just mentioned this. lol

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed they didn't have an article of impeachment based on any actual crimes. You would have thought extortion or bribery would have made the cut if the people were buying that trash. But they're not.

Was listening to Tim Pool's podcast recently about Youtubes new so called children friendly & anti-h8 guidelines. Alex Jones was definitely the "test" subject across all platforms to up the ante on censoring free speech to deem everything the left doesn't like including facts as so called H8 speech. It was also eye opening to hear that certain key words & topics like simply being religious or pro-gun can automatically get you flagged to be demonetized. If they're a company that believes in free speech, diversity etc. why not let the market determine that?  

Bottom line is they have a leftists agenda & they're covering their @ss as well legally but their model is they will try to make it impossible for anyone that doesn't tow the corporate line & promote their own leftists agenda so they are trying to silence & cancel those that don't tow their line even moderates & reasonable content.  It's why they're rigging subscriptions changing the algorithm & fooling with or outright shadow banning, blocking results, faking trends etc. to make the popular content creators get less & less views until they can claim those channels etc. aren't viable, undesirable & or flag the content out of context. They don't want nor did they expect content creators to have such large followings with people ranting from their basements on a Monday night that cuts into the profits and viewership of traditional media which is dying but it's A OK if you're supporting the agenda's they support lol. It's so transparent what's going on and the more they try to rig that and cover it up the more blow back will happen so in fact they are promoting division and opening the door for the gov to have to step in and regulate it into the ground like they do with everything. 

This is the big problem i have with all that. One standard for all or none at all. You can't have it both ways & the platforms are going eat themselves if they keep going in this direction. Many seem to be moving towards other platforms like B!tChute etc. but for now the problem with pro free speech platforms like that is it's a total cesspool so good content can get drowned out easily if you have all the basement dwellers ranting lol. 

IMO there needs to be an alternative platform with "some" regulation but without all the leftists bias especially the algorithms being coded for it & brass that work for these companies all being in favor of leftists agendas. < I'm not saying these companies should have an affirmative action type of policy toward who gets on their boards but if they were smart they'd start actively recruiting/promoting people internally with less bias and a sense of fairness. 

A lot of these companies brass are getting tired of having to "police" the content, & they don't have the man power etc. so they rely on algorithms so they don't can get fined, investigated, have to deal with congressional oversight etc. i get it but it's very obvious & they've been caught many times making biased decisions to cancel content they may not like that doesn't fit their agenda. 

Tl:dr i don't want social media regulated into the ground but maybe that's what needs to happen because we can't have nice things with idiots that are too biased with an agenda. 

LOL @Sparktard censoring B I T C H U TE because it thought i was trying to say B!TCH

In art news this guy ate a 150 K banana at an art exhibit and wrote "Epstein didn't kill himself" on the wall. 

He was escorted out and two guards "covered up" what he wrote on that wall. 

I don't know if the gallery secretly played a part but this is amazing 5D chess performance art LOL

A shame the camera's didn't "malfunction".

New Jersey Democrat outspoken against Trump impeachment expected to switch parties, sources say

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/12/14/politics/jeff-van-drew-democrat-switch-parties-republican-trump-impeachment/index.html

This guy clearly got the notice that the DNC was not going to be protecting his spot. They told him he would be voting yes to impeachment and that his seat would be at risk, and he told them to shove it up their asses. lol

World needs more of these people. He answers to his constituents, NOT the DNC. And good for him too.

I hope Trump does get impeached just for Pence to be sworn in and then elect Trump as VP, resign, and then make Trump president again. 

BWAHAHA, NGFH!  If Pence were sworn in, he'd tell Trump to fook off and establish his own domain, likely a theocracy.  That's what I both hate and love about Pence, he STFU and just lays back waiting, but if the opportunity arises, he'll be on it like a blind dog in a meat market.  It's the "be careful what you wish for" scenario that would have the Dumbocrats chitting themselves.
