The whole subject is having a weird effect on me. Bad enough that an old union man like me who doesn't want to hunt with a sharp stick is torn by opposing issues. But now we have an embarrassing president who is way better than anyone the Dems can hose down. And yes, Highlander has a point about Trump's track record for getting things done. We have had a long line of ho-hum presidents prior to Trump. No president, either party, is without their warts and imperfections. Trump less.

What is frustrating is that neither party can find a candidate who could run the country suitably. Trump has the right idea about China taking us to the cleaners; the Middle East is a powder keg; North Korea displays belligerence. Previous admins had pretended not to see it. The press shows no evidence of letting up on Trump which undermines all his efforts. I wonder if the voters can make an informed decision with the press harping incessantly. We need media for information and present day media is corrupt and unreliable.

I hope others are not suffering from the same level of distrust that I am over media coverage. I don't want to read anything in the papers any more and even TV news has crept into my distrust. I wish I didn't feel this way.

Rumor has it that Trump colluded with the NWS to move Hurricane Dorian north so it won't hit Mar-A-Lago

I have this nagging sense that Trump is going to be reelected out of default the same was it was last election. The dems just don't have anybody. Sure another Kennedy could be groomed but I don't think enough time is available prior to the next election. Pocahontis is way too weak; Biden is making mistakes; and the Vermont guy is too old. I suppose one of the "Squad" could run but they all lack experience and frankly, at the risk of being accused of racism, so much could be leveled at them they would have no chance.

Ike was probably my favorite president with Magnus Renaldus being a close second but Trump is far and away the toughest of the bunch. I am unaware of anyone else who could stand up against the corrupt media, yes "fake news", conspiracies, allegations, lies, treasonous trash that this man has and not only keep truckin' but hand it right back to them twice over! I like his policies and I love the fact that he won't allow himself or his country to be bullied. Sure he sometimes gives us a bit of a nervous twitch but he is our last great hope to stave off the globalist, New World Order gang. I've little doubt after he humiliates the democrat field in 2020 that it will likely be the last chance for a non-career pol American citizen to ever be elected again. There's too much at stake for the liars and thieves in Washington who have been fleecing us for years, and too little possibility for anyone to come along and defeat the electronic media, the Googles and Facebooks of the world for those who have all but succeeded in ruining our culture and our country to risk another loss. It makes me lose sleep thinking about the world that my children and grandchildren will see when scum like the Clintonistas team up with even lower sediment like Obama and his tribe to bring this country to it's knees. Unless a tremendous number of Americans suddenly become very bright and informed our downfall is imminent.

One comfort is that the press is faltering as well as government. One of the prominent Boston Globe columnists, Cullen, when told both the paper and their material was weak and inappropriate, said, "get in line." A clear sign that readership public is losing confidence.

Trump cheered a new poll that shows his approval rating at 50 percent. The Rasmussen Reports daily presidential tracking poll showed his approval rating at 50 percent for Monday ? compared to Obama?s 46 percent approval rating at the same point of his presidency.

If we can't trust the press, then why would we believe their surveys. One can see that newspapers cherry pick letters. The Boston Mogadishu news letter never runs a pro-trump letter yet everyone I meet in stores, casinos other social settings, supports Trump. Incidentally, women dislike Trump because he defeated Hillary.

If we have a woman in the white house there will be special shopping days while the Middle East goes up in flames. Pocahontis gets the nod we will have the election knocked because she is just another Hillary.

LET THEM TRY TO IMPEACH TRUMP!
By: Hyram F. Suddfluffel, PhD, (Political Science)



I have a degree in Political Science, and I am a card-carrying Libertarian.
I've been studying politics and political history for the past 30 years. My specialty is U.S. Presidents. That said, I hope that the House of Representatives impeaches Trump. Let me tell you what will happen next!

1. The House can pass articles of impeachment over the objections of the Republicans, and refer to the Senate for trial.

2. The Senate will conduct a trial. There will be a vote, and the Republicans will vote unanimously, along with a small number of Democrats, to not convict the President. Legally, it will all be over at that point.

3. However, during the trial, and this is what no one is thinking about right now, the President's attorneys will have the right to subpoena and question ANYONE THEY WANT.. That is different than the special counsel investigation, which was very one-sided. So, during the impeachment trial, we will be hearing testimony from James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Donna Brazille, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, and a whole host of other participants in this whole sordid affair and the ensuing coverup activities. A lot of dirt will be dug up; a lot of truth will be unveiled. Finger pointing will occur. Deals will start being made, and suddenly, a lot of democrats will start being charged and going to prison. All this, because, remember, the President's team will now, for the first time, have the RIGHT to question all of these people under oath - and they will turn on each other. That is already starting.

4. Lastly, one more thing will happen, the Senate will not convict the President. Nothing will happen to Trump. Most Americans are clueless about political processes, the law, and the Constitution. Most Americans believe that being impeached results in removal from office. They don't understand that phase 2 is a trial in and by the Senate, where he has zero chance of conviction. Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans; they will determine what testimony is allowed -- and **everything** will be allowed, including: DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign to fix the election in favor of Hillary, the creation of the Trump dossier, the cover up and destruction of emails that very likely included incriminating information. They will incriminate each other for lying to the FISA court, for spying and wiretapping the Trump campaign, and for colluding with foreign political actors, especially George Soros. After the Senate declines to convict the President, we will have an election, and Trump will win. It will be a backlash against democrat petulance, temper tantrums, hypocrisy and dishonesty. Even minorities will vote for Trump, because, for the first time, they will see that democrats have spent 2+ years focused on maintaining their own power, and not doing anything at all about black murders in Chicago, homelessness, opioids, and other important issues that are actually killing people. And, we will spend the following four years listening to politicians and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged.?
