It’s hard to believe that the overwhelming majority of Americans — whether or not they were ever partisan — haven’t formed an opinion by now about the state of our national politics. After all, we’ve all been forced to endure years of various accusations and investigations that recently culminated in the impeachment and failed prosecution of President Donald Trump.

And even after a moderate Senate acquitted the president on the articles of impeachment brought against him by the angry liberals running the U.S. House of Representatives, it seems that there may be no end in sight for this nonsense.

Those who continue this effort do so at their political peril. It appears the American people have had enough.

Talk of impeachment began soon after the November 2016 election, even before Trump’s inauguration. A Washington Post headline printed the day the president took the oath of office declared: “The Campaign to Impeach President Trump has Begun.”

Early on, his adversaries placed the goal of removing the president from the Oval Office on the front burner. While he sought to deal with policy issues such as job creation, trade, sensible regulation and criminal justice reform, he was always treated as the enemy by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her colleagues. There was no honeymoon for Trump.

Members of Congress including Maxine Waters, Al Green, Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff carried the torch in the crusade to find something — anything — by which to hang articles of impeachment. While the concept of impeachment was proposed by the Founding Fathers to be a remedy for “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” Pelosi’s lieutenants set a low bar for their impeachment efforts. First it was alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. Then an affair with a porn star. Then not being critical enough of racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.

What they ended up with — an alleged quid pro quo in Ukraine — resulted in two weak, politicized charges sent to the Senate after a partisan investigation and vote. In the Senate, it was easily rebutted and dismissed in — once again — a largely partisan vote.

Now, as an American people, we are faced with a new challenge. How will this impeachment affect the national conversation? After creating a constitutional crisis, how do liberals expect us to pick up the pieces and get back to our normal lives again? Has this partisan exercise ignited a “cold civil war” in America?

Liberals have drawn the battle lines to energize their base. Speaker Pelosi insisted that President Trump is “impeached forever,” and that “cannot be erased.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer stated that his colleagues will not accept an acquittal as legitimate. So how does he intend to get back to work now that the acquittal has occurred?

Protests and rallies were organized on both sides before and during the trial, and those seeking Trump’s removal will inevitably continue their crusade. And we are now in an election year, when tempers are likely to flare even more.

While the blame game is going to spark some lively debate among the president’s detractors, it’s interesting to see that the president’s approval rating is actually at a personal best in Gallup polling.

There is no doubt liberals still want to try to turn this issue around, make more claims against the president and his supporters in Congress and maybe even roll the impeachment dice again. What’s next? Possibly accusations of emolument, charging that he is using the presidency to make money for his hotels and resorts. Rep. Green still has three articles of impeachment alleging bigotry and racism.

Those instigating a perpetual campaign of personal destruction against Trump are risking a firestorm that may burn them the most. They seem to fail to recognize that the American people will soon have their own say regarding the president’s political fate, and liberal witch-hunting may be helping the president more than hurting him.

It’s not a witch hunt when he acts like king Midas except whatever he touches turns to dung, and his cabinet is either family, friends, lobbyists that are in no way qualified or directly opposite in beliefs for the post they hold, and his conviction rate among them is staggering.

The Grape of Wrath

Well, the impeachment certainly was a witch hunt..........and they sure found witches, and a plethora of warlocks to boot.

jagman

Oh NO!!! Witches and Warlocks! Run for the hills.

rikkitikkitavvi

Add Lions and Tigers and Bears to the witches and warlocks in the lower chamber and you may have something. Do I hear pay per view Gladiator and Gladiatorette events? I'd love to see Pelosi in her white pantsuit ala' Hillary against a Bear. I'd pay to see that.

It is hard to believe all those on the left who spew vile hatred for America, the president and those citizens who voted for him actually believe what they write. I thought they were the party of inclusion and tolerance; however, their words do not seem to flange up with their ideals. Hypocrites, maybe?

hayduke2

Again with the labels - left and liberal are not terms that apply to most Democrats just as racist and deplorable are not terms that apply to most Republicans. Address the issues and get rid of the sterotyping and just maybe America can once again reach compromise legislation and move forward. And yes, the current President thrives on sterotyping anyone who disagrees with him, no matter how civil they are.

BunnyLou

The current state of affairs did not begin 3 years ago, but rather when brother Al lost to GWB. All we heard from the left was stupid and ignorant and everything today. Fast forward eight years, it then became the white man’s fault under 44. Through today those on the left, dems included, have tried to marginalize all men. So when the left and their willing accomplices in the press go after the president and his supporters he pushes back. In fact, he is probably the first R to get in the gutter and dirty to fight them at their own game. I believe this is where he solidifies his support by taking it to the establishment. Finally, I appreciate your comment and your right to do so, but I don't need your lecturing and you should lecture all about labeling. Like my mom always said ‘to label is to disable’, but one cannot sit by and read the vile spewing of those from the left of center. Good day.

hayduke2

Sorry, the truth is sometimes hard to face.

threecents

Yah, it is what it is. Sorry for calling it like we see it.[unsure]

phydeaux994

BunnyLou, read through all the comments on this article and see which group are doing the most vile spewing of hate and insults, I.e. “All we heard from the left was stupid and ignorant and everything today.” You alone spew more vile hate and venom that all of us “lefties” put together. Peace.

jagman

Have you really looked at the dem candidates for president? They are beating each other over the head to out socialist one another. It is entirely within reason to think dems are left and/or liberal. Certainly not moderates.

Open borders, free medical to anyone who can crawl here (7.2 billion available), free college to anyone, no bail, theft up to $950 OK, shut down fossil fuel companies and throw executives in prison, outlaw the EC, felons voting, illegal aliens voting and plenty more.

What's not to like, right?

hayduke2

Healthcare, infrastructure, addressing climate change, immigration reform, securing voting rights and protecting voting - just a few of the actual goals

jagman

OK hay, you know full well healthcare was messed up by the dems back in 2009 with obamacare. That's the reason they want another go at it. Infrastructure? Really hay? Maybe your precious dems should have worked with Trump on that rather than spend all their time on the impeachment sham. Immigration reform? I guess in your mind that's OPEN borders, right? Since when does anyone not have the right to vote? As long as you're a citizen and not a felon, at least. That argument is completely false and you know it. The left perpetuates that argument to protect the cemetery voters.

As for climate change? We all know the goal there is to take over the economy and control everyone's lives. Even the AOC girls campaign manager admitted that was the goal. Guess what. Humans can't control the climate. The Earth is way too powerful for us to do much other than live here. When the Earth is tired of us we'll be gone.

rikkitikkitavvi

You're funny duke. Really you are. Immigration reform, securing voting rights and protecting voting are the funniest. The left has no idea what those really mean except that they are losing the law-abiding American citizens votes and gaining the illegal votes with all the free crap they are offering them for their vote. I urge you to wake up from your fantasy world and see what your cult is trying to do to this country. It ain't pretty.

rikkitikkitavvi

duke, since when has anyone on the left and liberal including the fake news ever been civil to this President?

Alice Jones

worry about the pole, riko.

Alice Jones

awwwwww, are you sensitive feelings hurt? 'but they were mean to me'. oddly reminiscent of an elementary school yard at recess. go figure.

hayduke2

Every interaction has been civil and did not involve name calling. No claims of fake news, no calling some a sleeze or scum, no derogatory nicknames , etc. Sorry you can’t see that.

jagman

Hay. Civil and no name calling? [lol][lol][lol][lol][lol][lol][lol][lol][lol][lol][lol]

As I said before, the facing of reality is hard for some.[sad]

As I said before duke, you're in the alternate universe where Clinton won 2016. I guess. ..facing reality is even harder for the Democrats HUH? TRUMP. IS. YOUR. PRESIDENT. That is your reality for some time to come. Will you live through it? Time will tell.

Alice Jones

Loo - for the record - I love my country and will never spew vile hatred towards her. She is the beacon of hope throughout the world. The calling for a better life. The place of sacrifice and aspirations for the ideals she represents. In all seriousness, please explain how the current administration is inclusive and tolerant. You argue that democrats are people (note - fellow Americans) that hate our country. Please provide definitive evidence. Please. Thank you.

threecents

Again, the term tolerance has different meanings. When it is used in reference to the Democratic party, it refers to treating as equals: people of any color, race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. It has nothing to do with being nice to people we disagree with.

Piedmontgardener

Dealing in generalities is the sign of a weak mind unable to see that people aren't one dimensional. I'm a fiscal conservative who is strongly behind all individual rights. Which means I'm very liberal to certain conservatives and conservative to certain liberals. So be it. But I'd never be myopic enough to slam a label down like you do, Bunny. That's the essence of Trumpism.

rikkitikkitavvi

"...slam down a LABEL. Look at the daily msm and count how many labels they "SLAM" down on Trump supporters on a daily basis! I see you are quite blind to the bias of that msm The entire D party including 95% of the media must have weak minds because they do it every day. Stuff a sock in it Pee. Your claim has no merit whatsoever in this "get Trump because he whipped her" TDS infected leftist society. That TDS, has mutated into the Total Democrat Suicide. You see that every day also. Care to comment on that Pee? You people are simply dirty losers. That is why so many are walking away from a party that has only been left with fear and misinformation to run on. TRUMP. HAS. BROKEN. YOU. Go look in the mirror and say it 100 times.[beam]

morel hunter

Wow, just wow. Perhaps you should read this comment at church. I don't watch MSN or CNN rather I read dozens of news outlets to get my facts. You and your ilk watch one channel, Fox News, and your not even watching the news section. You are getting OPINIONS. So as for where you get your so called facts, you support an organization that paid out one claim of $32 million for sexual harassment on Bill O'Reilly's part. I don't believe it was harassment rather than something much worse. Along with that there were numerous million $ settlements for Mr. O'Reilly and your fact finding organization STILL hired the guy. I won't get into Roger Ailes. So before you question and bash ones fact outlet, I would advise you to look in a mirror.

awteam2000

From my point of view, I can’t examine the merits of party or personal political position while the monster of immorality stands in the way. Trump is simply a vile, disgusting, lying, cheating, inept being, a narcissist that shouldn’t be in the discussion of the next presidency. My vote is for anyone but him.

I wish the Republican Party could find someone, anyone that wasn’t so filthy. 🥺

As of February 2020, 3 Rep. U.S. senators and 27 Rep. U.S. representatives are not running for re-election.

Most latest, more than 1,100 former prosecutors and other DOJ officials call on Attorney General Bill Barr to resign. Protest of this nature have never happened, even leading up to the civil war. Not even over Lincoln’s suspension of the “writ of habeas corpus“.

rikkitikkitavvi

aw, your POV only has merit to people of like mindedness. I feel the same way about you as you feel about the President I elected.

I wish the Dem party would just destroy themselves. Oh WAIT! They are. They are! They are![smile]. As of November 3, 2020 the Lower chamber of Congress, The House, will no longer be the Majority and Nancy Pelosi will lose her gavel for all time.

Most latest, when has an AG in recent history ever been apolitical? Aim Small. Miss Small aw. Have a MAGA week!

Alice Jones

is it safe to say riko et al support constitutional monarchy?

"Constitutional Republic, if you can keep it". sam.

Aw, I think there's one Republican running against Trump but the Trump cult will not even put his name on the ballot in some states for fear their cult leader would have to defend his corrupt ways.

jagman

Once again dick shows his utter lack of information. There are a couple of alternate candidates running in the republican primary. They both got smoked by Trump in Iowa and NH. Watch the same thing happen in NV.

So, dick old boy, I asked you once before and I'll ask again: Tell me what state is not going to allow the other candidates on the republican primary ballot.

If you fail to answer it will prove you have no idea what you're talking about.

awteam2000

‘Republicans to scrap primaries and caucuses as Trump challengers cry foul’ would your comment to Dick implied your lack of information? https://www.politico.com/story/2019/09/06/republicans-cancel-primaries-trump-challengers-1483126

jagman

Except that didn't happen. Weld and whoever the other Trump hater is are on the ballot.

Iowa, NH already done and Nevada and South Carolina are next (two states listed in the article).

Question. How many dem challengers were on the ballot in 2012?

DickD

The first question is how did we ever elect a psychopath to be POTUS? Given that how can anyone continue to support this angry child? The Democrats did the right thing Impeaching him and now those poor.gullible Republican Senators will pay a price for their lamentable aid of Trump.

thump1202

I'm annoyed by the way these columnists abuse the word "Liberal." Traditionally, liberals were people who supported individual rights, the current leftists have no use for that at all and attack individual rights to make us less free in their endless fear. The right's all talk and barely ever works to do anything, and they seek to restrict our 1A their own way with their so called antisemitism laws, Florida passed something to that effect I believe.

awteam2000

“ the current leftists have no use for that at all and attack individual rights to make us less free in their endless fear”, so women’s birth choices, legalization of marijuana, end of life options, woman suffrage movement, black lives matter aren’t individual rights issues?

Can one be ‘liberal’ on some issues and ‘conservative’ on others or does that make it too hard to figure out one’s adversaries verses advocates?

gabrielshorn2013

Sure they can aw. We're called Libertarians. We promote the rights of the individual, as well as the responsibilities of that individual.

awteam2000

Gabe,

Unfortunately, Libertarians don’t do well with candidacies. They can’t gather a forum.

Seen by others, as Republican or Democrat leaning sympathies, but too embarrassed too admit it. On the right -, “Trump did nothing wrong”, Democrats can’t get over Hillary losing. Leaning to the left - “Trump is Lucifer, the second coming of Hitler”, Republicans have sold their souls. Libertarians play a psychological, philosophical game with themselves - they are of course above Party politics. But everyone knows where their final votes will fall... Not really relevant. Only “Monday-morning quarterbacks”.

hayduke2

Just curious --As a libertarian, do you support the right of a woman to choose?

gabrielshorn2013

Of course I do hay, and I have stated that here many times. Each individual is responsible for their own bodies. I just wish that more took responsibility for their actions, even if it's inconvenient. That said, it was always supposed to be accessible but rare. To me, it's a morality issue, but we cannot regulate morality. Don't like abortion, don't have one. But I'm not going to tell anyone what to do with their own bodies.

Alice Jones

Completely on-board, Gabe. Only thing I will add is also responsible for their actions.

Alice Jones

Sorry Gabe - missed the sentence regarding actions.

hayduke2

Thanks Gabe - thought that might be your response or something similar.

phydeaux994

Libertarians = Trump Supporters/Defenders....the Right of the Individual to do as DJ Trump says, or else. 🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑

That said gabe, how do you explain that the self identified Libertarians vote Republican on every major issue.

Always gotta be the gadfly, eh phy? Read and learn. Season your words well. You never know when you will have to eat them.

https://www.lp.org/platform/

gabrielshorn2013

Not necessarily so hay. It depends on the candidates and issues. Democrats say we're really Republicans, and Republicans say we are Democrats. Some Democrats support individual liberties (ACLU, etc.) and some don't. I do. Same goes for Republicans. Previous Republicans believed in a low, but broad tax base, plus small government. Not anymore. Rand Paul and his father continue to hammer the current administration on those issues. Both parties spend like drunken sailors anymore, to pander to their respective bases. Republicans cut taxes without reducing spending, resulting in deficit spending, even during "good times".

threecents

Rand is pro-life, which strikes me as un-libertarian, but to each his own.

gabrielshorn2013

Just as there is no monolithic philosophy in Republicans or Democrats, the same with Libertarians. Rand is also a physician (eye surgeon) volunteer that travels the US and around the globe to treat impoverished kids free of charge. He sees the kids that nobody wants.

The author of this article is a member of the NAC for Project 21.

For those unfamiliar with project 21. Here is a link to their site:

https://nationalcenter.org/project-21/

and their own description of who/what they are

ABOUT PROJECT 21

Project 21 is an initiative of The National Center for Public Policy Research to promote the views of African-Americans whose entrepreneurial spirit, dedication to family and commitment to individual responsibility have not traditionally been echoed by the nation’s civil rights establishment.

Project 21 participants have been interviewed by hundreds of media outlets, including the O’Reilly Factor, Hannity and Colmes, the CNN Morning News, Black Entertainment Television’s Lead Story, America’s Black Forum, the McLaughlin Group, C-SPAN’s Morning Journal and the Rush Limbaugh, Michael Reagan, Sean Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy and Larry King shows, as well as in newspapers such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Washington Times and many others.

Project 21 participants live all over the U.S. and have a variety of careers. What they have in common is a desire to make America a better place for African-Americans, and all Americans, to live and work. Project 21 members do this in a variety of ways in their own communities, and, through Project 21, by writing opinion editorials for newspapers, participating in public policy discussions on radio and television, by participating in policy panels, by giving speeches before student, business and community groups, and by advising policymakers at the national, state and local levels.

awteam2000

So?

jagman

AW, your dismissive attitude toward Project 21, and probably other similar organizations, is absolutely no surprise. These groups have as their agenda the empowerment of the INDIVIDUAL. They encourage people to take control of their lives, improve skills and attitude so they can succeed in life...ON THEIR OWN.

That, of course, is anathema to the democrat party. A party that cannot exist in a world of strong, successful individuals. Why? When individuals discover they can take control and succeed they also learn they don't need big momma government.

So, you and your ilk will continue to talk down such organizations.

Your comment reveals exactly what you are.

Not that it was a surprise.

hayduke2

Kind of like talking down the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, MSM, NPR, FBI, intelligence agencies, and other similar organizations.

jagman

What? I have no real issue with the ACLU most of the time. Planned parenthood would be fine as long as the taxpayers are not funding it. The MSM is completely out of control and has been a long time. You don't care because they say the same garbage you believe. NPR? Again it's a propaganda organ. Should not receive taxpayer funding.

And let's be clear. The FBI and all the other shadowy alphabet agencies have been weaponized against American citizens they don't like. Used to be all you on the left agreed they were dangerous. Right up to the point they turned on Trump.

threecents

Interesting that this laughable pro-Trump column writer referred to Senate Rebublicans as "moderate." I had not even considered before whether they were moderate or extreme - just that they are Mitch's flunkies and Mitch is Trump's tool.

thump1202

From my point of view Trump is a business D circa the 80's/90's. The fact he's running the R party now is proof that the D's have moved the overton window a lot over the years. There's been a few "Trump" republicans elected in the past two cycles, it's arguable that they're more traditional D than R. Social conservatism is basically dead now, and I'm happy to kick that dead horse.

tonyc51

"t’s hard to believe that the overwhelming majority of Americans — whether or not they were ever partisan — haven’t formed an opinion by now about the state of our national politics." I sure have, my opinion is that both sides need to do something for the citizens of the country and put their petty, childish rhetoric to the side. Vote out all, whether Rep or Dem, that can't do that this November!

jagman

That would be all politicians who don't want to promote America first. Looks like it would include just about 100% of dems and 50-60% of repubs.

hayduke2

And therein lies the problem - you have a distorted view of who and what makes a supporter of America and it shows in this post.

jagman

It's your side that has a dystopian view of America, which includes you.

You refuse to admit that tens of millions of Americans are better off today than they were 4 years ago. America is winning. Americans are winning. Try supporting that for a change.

phydeaux994

Yes, tens of millions of rich people have gotten richer and millions of poor people are slightly less poor but the middle class have been left behind. Thank President Obama for this Bull Economy but only the top 10% have benefitted under Trump. And America is not the Force it was four years ago. We have abandoned our Allies and allowed Russia to manipulate our influence in the World.

jagman

And you, pd994, are the poster person for that dystopian view.

All isn't lost, however, they still offer the sirloin special at Golden Corral. Get there before 4:30.

thump1202

Phy is right on this one. The tax cut was targeted for young mid-country families and the rich. I happen to make out pretty well in my demo, I keep an extra couple thousand a year, but I know plenty of people who ended up with a net tax increase who are solid middle class, just don't have a lot of kids like me.

tonyc51

I have always been a supporter of term limits at every level, and to include the judiciary.

thump1202

I'm on board with you here hay, the real power brokers will stay the same but at least different faces might bring people willing to use their positions for something besides grandstanding on TV and grifting to their families. Biden's been in there longer than I've been alive and I'm certain I accomplish more every day I work than he has as a legislator over that time frame.

DickD

I am not and never have been. If someone is doing a good job, keep them. If not, elect someone else. As far as judges are concerned they should never be appointed for life.

I say keep it up. Every time the dems pull another stunt, Trump get more supporters.

His rallies get larger and the dem candidates can't fill a high school gym. The only candidate that has supporters is Sanders and the DNC is working a plan to shaft him once again. Add that to the fact things are going quite well for tens of millions of American citizens and you get a Trump win in a landslide. I'm investing accordingly. Others should also.

Not exactly an honest guy.

thump1202

The interesting thing is that they polled rally goers and upwards of 30% were democrats. That should worry the left, at the end of the day Trump is an opportunist and will do whatever people will cheer. He spent his life as a business democrat and now he parrots right wing talking points but everyone knows he doesn't really have a strong ideology other than promoting himself.

Who cares if he is/was a democrat and now a republican. His "ideology" is promoting American success which is helping Americans across all demographics.

That is why the left will lose this year.

You're not voting for Trump, you're voting for Jared. Let's be honest here, Trump isn't leading anything. He watches TV and gives speeches, and says dumb things on Twitter. Then I have to do damage control in trying to make my kids live moral lives. I can't stand the guy. His people have done alright but I really want someone more respectable in office.

Trump is the Republican party now, and he continues to pick conservative judges and supports a lot of traditional Republican themes: anti-immigrant, pro-life, low taxes on the wealthy, high spending on military, deregulation, low spending on social programs, pro-oil, pro-coal, pro-gun, and pro-1950s.

Trump is what the Republican party was always supposed to be, he continues to pick constitutional judges and supports certain traditional Libertarian/Republican themes: anti ILLEGAL immigration, pro-life but could be tempered if the left backed off wanting abortion right up to the point of birth, low taxes on EVERYONE, necessary spending on military, deregulation, sensible spending on social programs for the truly needy- not the lazy, pro-oil, pro gas, OK with coal until gas can take over, pro-2nd amendment, pro-AMERICA FIRST and pro American success.

There, I fixed it for you.
