Placeholder It's Your Call

Do it again

Let’s impeach the president. I don’t mean President Donald Trump. I mean the next, whoever or whatever it is. We don’t need any evidence. We just know we already hate them. If we start now, we can have the trial the day after the inauguration.

No denial

Watching the impeachment hearings Monday morning, listening to the Democratic counsel opening remarks, and it was all about the wrongdoings of Donald Trump. … Listening to the Republicans’ counsel, there’s no rebuttal. No one denies that Trump did these things, they just don’t like that he’s being impeached for it.

Why go back?

Trump hasn’t broken any laws. If you would read the Constitution instead of listening to the liberal, lying news outlets, you might learn something. He has done more for our country than any recent president. What do you want to do? Go back to high unemployment, unfair trade policies, environmental idiots ruining our economy?

Dry season

I’m reading in the paper about the Krug Pool getting hit — $200,000 to fix it? Well, close it up, like they did our Hyde Park pool. You know, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. … Let them all go up to the Aquatic Park. That’s what they told our kids to do.

Father’s son

I scan the Michael Reagan column to see how long it takes him to invoke the name of his father, which is always in there somewhere.

School prayer

I already have called the American Civil Liberties Union about the school-led prayer at sporting events in Cameron. It’s absolutely, positively against the Constitution.

Unhandy

I would like to comment on the parking at Mosaic. Now they have valet parking and they eliminated parking places around there with cones that you can’t park at. They’re already limited on parking. This makes it very unhandy for a person trying to get in there.

Lighten up

I’m answering “Sign of the times” in Monday’s newspaper. My dictionary gives the entry for the word “man” as a shortened form of “mankind,” the race of man. “Men” would be just a plural of that, so it’s members of the race of man. “Man” as a gender designation comes in about the second or third. So, please get your facts straight.

"After pointing out the reporters gathered in the back so the audience could loudly boo them, the president continued to make the baseless claim that a restraining order was put in place.

'Now that’s what I heard, I don’t know,' he added."

For all of you CHINO/CONNIES out there this kind of says it all. "UPDATED with Jim Starlin reaction: What’s more presidential than a sadistic alien despot who wipes out half the universe? In a curious move, the campaign to re-elect President Donald Trump has circulated a mash-up photo and video that melds the head of chief executive with the hulking form of Thanos, the extraterrestrial menace made infamous in the Avengers films from Disney and Marvel Studios.

Thanos creator Jim Starlin slammed the campaign ad in a post on Instagram. “After my initial feeling of being violated, seeing that pompous dang fool using my creation to stroke his infantile ego, it finally struck me that the leader of my country and the free world actually enjoys comparing himself to a mass murderer. How sick is that?” Starlin, who created the character in 1973, wrote.

John Birch Society

Yet it's the globalists/eugenicists who President Trump stands against want to use fluoride, GMO's, vaccines & chem-trails to reduce/control human population. I met Jim Starlin in 2019. Paid to get his autograph on a piece of his artwork featuring Thanos. But I don't get my political advice from him. I don't think President Trump TOLD anyone to put his face on Thanos, and seriously doubt he has a clue who Thanos IS or he'd have it removed. Trump is the Avenger, not the villain you Leftists are attempting to make him out to be. [whistling][huh]

First of all it is a lie, which usua for you, to say that Nancy Pelosi a politician on the national level, has anything to do with state politics.

LMAO.. after reading here a bit, I see munch has learned a new word... ASSumption

B4

New polling shows a very troubling development for those desperate to see Donald Trump go down in 2020. After struggling in three key battleground states against Democratic presidential frontrunners, Trump has seen a surge in support since Democrats formally moved forward with impeachment. The Republican president now leads every potential Democratic opponent in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, three of the Rust Belt states that helped deliver Trump’s electoral victory in 2016.

B4

The Democrats are bringing two articles of impeachment against Trump: “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.”

Neither charge is specified in the Constitution’s impeachment clause, which reads: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

aj0201

You don't understand the history behind the Founders use of the term "High Crimes and Misdemeanors." That term speaks to a fiduciary responsibility of the office holder.

"A well-constituted court for the trial of impeachments is an object not more to be desired than difficult to be obtained in a government wholly elective. The subjects of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated POLITICAL, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. The prosecution of them, for this reason, will seldom fail to agitate the passions of the whole community, and to divide it into parties more or less friendly or inimical to the accused. In many cases it will connect itself with the pre-existing factions, and will enlist all their animosities, partialities, influence, and interest on one side or on the other; and in such cases there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt." -- Alexander Hamilton, Federalist 65

B4

If I (as you say) don't "understand ", just be assured that the majority of voters don't either. The Dems are cutting their own throats. It's looking better all the time to have both a Republican controlled Senate and House . Maybe you should give that a little thought before you post more of your crazy malarkey?

WrightWinger

Even those polls usually considered left-of-center have this week swung past the 50% mark of respondents opposed to impeachment. Only a couple weeks ago these same polling organizations were reporting responses averaging 55% in favor of impeachment. This impeachment boat Schiff and Pelosi launched is sinking like the Titanic and taking the Democrat Party with it. That is the reason for the rush to a House vote, while Pelosi can still hold at least 216 members of her caucus to vote "aye" on impeachment. Thirty-one of them are from Congressional districts that Trump carried; if nineteen or more defected the impeachment vote would fail.

aj0201

Federalists 65 is “crazy malarkey?” Hmmm. Ok. I have no doubt that the vast majority of citizens don’t understand the term nor the process of impeachment. Our own elected officials are clueless. The same people that keep chanting “NO CRIME HAS BEEN COMMITTED” are the same people who used to chant “LOCK HER UP!” An emotional bunch, not known for their sound logic. Here’s a little secret (you can verify with Lindsey Graham): no crime need be committed.

B4

Poor aj - he has such ignorance with his reading comprehension. Notice I referred to HIS crazy malarkey. And his Intelligence regarding politics really shines out; after all he admitted he voted for Hillary. Hahahaha!

munchman1

Sorry aj but do you expect the dumb blank to understand this or even try?

Hey stupid they fall under the category of high Crimes and Misdemeanors, DUH!

He asked a foreign government to investigate a US citizen (READ THE TRANSCRIPT). He withheld money to help bring about that investigation. He has obstructed Congress in their investigation into this matter.

These are not in dispute and they are impeachable acts.

John Birch Society

In America, NO ONE, not even the Former vice-President is 'Above the Law'... [whistling]

WrightWinger

By all means, "READ THE TRANSCRIPT." If you haven't, here are the words the Democrats would have us believe require a duly elected President of the United States be fired: "There's a lot of talk about Biden's son,. that Biden stopped the

prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you ·can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me." Nowhere is there an actual demand made of the Ukrainian President to investigate the Bidens or forgo an American aid package if he doesn't. There is just no there, there. But, that matters not to the Democrats and their impeachment charade will go on to the inevitable conclusion, a not-guilty verdict being returned by the Senate.

houdiniharry

Biden is as much a crook as anyone else in DC

James Bond1

NAW.……...he passed them by a long time back.

aj0201

But then on the South Lawn, when asked “what, exactly, did (he) want” from that phone call, he said “....they should investigate the Bidens. And...China should investigate....” This is “what, exactly,” he wanted.

If it should be determined off-the-cuff comments to the press can in a court of law be used as incriminating evidence, there are going to be a lot of politicians in trouble

1) Trump claimed the Russia probe was an "illegal witch hunt" and that it was "an investigation that should have never happened." TRUMP WAS WRONG. The IG said the FBI had "sufficient" evidence, and an "articulable factual basis," to launch the Russia investigation In July 2016.

2) Trump claimed "the entire Russian probe is based" on the Steele dossier, and that the dossier "was responsible for starting" the investigation. TRUMP WAS WRONG. The IG concluded the Papadopoulos tip triggered the probe. (This affirms findings from Mueller and House Intel GOP.)

3) Trump said "the top people" at the FBI "were plotting against my election" and they "made up" the collusion allegations agains this campaign. TRUMP WAS WRONG. The report said these top FBI officials weren't motivated by political bias while they oversaw the investigation

4) Trump claimed surveillance of Carter Page was "illegal" and proof of "potentially massive FISA abuse." MIXED VERDICT. The IG said the FISA process wasn't abused for political purposes. But he found serious errors and omissions in the applications, and one email was doctored.

5) Trump claimed the FBI had spies and informants "implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign." TRUMP WAS WRONG. The IG found "no evidence" that the FBI sent spies into Trump campaign, and the IG said the FBI wasn't biased when it legally used informants in the probe

6) Trump re-tweeted clips containing theories that the Kremlin-linked professor who gave Papadopoulos early info about Russian hacks was really working for US intel. THIS APPEARS WRONG. The IG found "no evidence" that the professor, Joseph Mifsud, has ever worked for the FBI.

7) Trump pushed claims about DOJ official Bruce Ohr and his ties to Steele. He called Ohr a "disgrace" who was "helping...Steele find dirt." MIXED VERDICT. The IG said he made "consequential errors in judgment" about Steele, but his actions didn't Impact the start of the probe.

Long story short: The IG report demonstrates once again how Trump relied on unsubstantiated theories and blatant falsehoods to hammer away at the Russia investigation

School Prayer- Another example of people with nothing better to do just being pissy.

John Birch Society

If people want to pray, let them pray. This is a foundational premise of American Freedom. But the state should not make any laws 'administering' religion on people. If people freely wish to pray in Schools, the Courthouse, or at the Dept. of Revenue, that's their purgative...

B4

Missouri AG Schmitt has issued a finding on the issue of Cameron HS football prayers. He cites multiple U.S. Supreme Court decisions that uphold the historic role of public prayer and the freedom of religion rights of public school students and organizations. Schmitt states, “Our understanding is that no coach or other Cameron official has forced any football player to participate in prayer or taken any action against any player who chose not to participate. The prayer occurs outside of the football game. The prayer is not broadcast over stadium loudspeakers, and fans evidently cannot hear any part of the prayer. The school district reports that it received no complaints from anyone about the prayer."

jdw64485

Your thoughts on this issue aj? As for as I'm concerned the players coaching staff could have kneeled down on the fifty yard line to pray. Honoring God is the right thing to do. If you don't want to pray fine excuse yourself and don't participate.

B4

It is the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) that is doing the bellyaching. There is no complainant from the Cameron district. The FFRF is a joke and is supported by liberal atheists.

aj0201

The whole stadium can kneel and pray if they want to. It just can’t, and shouldn’t, be led by the school.

I recall a couple years back and we did pledge our flag and say our prayers. Seemed to work just fine. No complaints no problems. Who are the scums that hang around today and seemed troubled by good things.

The Democrats are setting up two dangerous things. First they're setting themselves up for the biggest losses they've seen in many election cycles because they didn't learn the lessons the Republicans learned over the Clinton impeachment and they're also setting precedent for every president to follow. Whoever in power will impeach the POTUS if their political parties aren't one in the same.

John Birch Society

In a free election, the Democrats would LOSE badly. Even with their many, many fake narratives against President Trump, they would fail, probably even worse. But Democrats throughout history are masters of Election Fraud (2018, Kentucky race, etc.), & all this fake narrative is for is to solidify their 'soft' voter base, and as a cover for the massive Election Fraud that is to come. Plausible Deniability. President Trump should be wise to look into WHO owns the electronic voting machines (many are foreign), and effect SEVERE penalties on any Democrats caught subverting the election process, while they falsely accuse him of that very thing...
