Today, House Democrats will vote along party lines to send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, where this nonsense will, undoubtedly, be brought to an end. Despite knowing the obvious outcome of this sham from the outset, there still is one thing we MUST pay attention to – the 31 Democrats representing districts that President Trump one in 2020. And, according to the Epoch Times, we’re not the only one’s watching, so is the White House. President Donald Trump on Saturday passed along a warning against impeachment to ...

House moves to impeach – WE MUST RESPOND!

As you’ve likely already heard, the Democrats filed two articles of impeachment against President Trump this morning, in what is and will likely go down in history as the most corrupt, partisan, vindictive, unjust impeachment in American history. Please see my statement on this and share on social media: The Democrats’ decision to issue articles of impeachment against President Trump for ‘obstruction of Congress’ and ‘abuse of power’ is an unprecedented and dangerous attack on the separation of powers and executive privilege. Based on apparent Democrat standards ...

Adding Insult to Failure

Another week, another line-up of testimony from people who have no first hand knowledge of any wrongdoing committed by the President. That’s what Democrats have in store for us, on this, the fourth week of this impeachment lunacy. It is obvious that Democrats have nothing, yet they continue to push forward with no evidence. It’s mind-boggling that they can be so blind to the fact that no one believes what they’re saying anymore -- support for impeachment is falling, as their narrative is failing. According to The Federalist: CNN reports that in a private meeting this week, top Democrats conceded that the polls on impeachment were unlikely ...

The End of Impeachment?

After two weeks of the Democrats' phony impeachment hearings, it’s obvious that the Democrats have nothing. Nearly every witness had no first hand knowledge of anything, didn’t hear the Ukrainian phone call in question, and simply gave their opinions on foreign policy. So, at the end of this charade, Democrats are left having obviously over-played their hand. Yet, as time drags on, the Democratic leadership is still hell-bent on trying to impeach this President, with absolutely no evidence. However, this could quickly change. Why? The Justice Department Inspector General is about to release the long-awaited report on alleged FISA abuses. ...
