Well, Another Move By House Democrats That Proves Trump Lives Rent-Free In Their Heads
Townhall.com ^ | August 21, 2019 | Matt Vespa

They just cannot leave him alone. They cannot let 2016 go. They cannot let the fact that Hillary Clinton will never be president go. House Democrats are now in full impeachment mode. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now in the minority regarding this move, a majority of her caucus now supports proceedings to impeach Trump because he won an election. It’s sad. It’s pathetic. But this is what they were elected to do. House Democrats went sent to D.C. to impeach Trump, to stop him, and to derail his agenda that has created over three million new jobs, sunk unemployment across the board to historic lows, increased paychecks, and sent consumer and small business confidence to their highest marks in years. Now, of course, they couldn’t go with this course of action right out of the gate. They had to wait, increase the volume on the Trump-Russia myth in the liberal media echo chamber, and slowly get their caucus to back this move that will only energize Republicans come November 2020. And guess who is leading the charge again? Oh, that would be Rep. Al Green (D-TX) (via NPR):

With a majority of House Democratic lawmakers now behind him, Rep. Al Green says he'll try for a fourth time to impeach President Trump after Congress returns next month.

Green first called for impeachment four months into Trump's presidency, in May 2017.

Now, more than 120 House Democrats have publicly said they support an impeachment inquiry, according to NPR's tracker.

"Things start with a spark, and sometimes the spark is ignored," Green said following a Houston forum with his constituents earlier this month. "Other times the spark can cause others to become consumed with the righteousness of a cause and participate in the cause itself."

The eight-term congressman has remained the lone lawmaker calling for Trump's impeachment from the House floor for more than two years. But during that time, he has been joined by a steady stream of Democrats as they took control of the chamber this year.

I mean talk about relentless. This is borderline obsession—and it’s not a healthy one. It’s the embodiment of Trump Derangement Syndrome because the Left’s best hope of having a solid reason for such a proceeding was that Mueller report that blew up the collusion narrative decisively. There was none. Now, the tantrum that never ended in 2016 is about to take an even more absurd turn with this impeachment circus, which is further buoyed by the fact that most in the 2020 field also support it. Yet, Green also admitted that he wants this motion to be successful because if they fail in this endeavor, Trump will be re-elected. So, is that an admission from Democrats that they can’t beat Trump if the economy is still booming? I don’t know—but if the economy is still strong by Election Day, Trump will win a second term. More jobs and economic growth will always trump more government, socialism, health care for illegals, and the end of private health insurance any day of the week. And thus far, the 2020 Democratic field has no one who can beat Trump. From Sleepy Joe to Comrade Kamala, the Democratic Party has no one, especially if they sign off on this impeachment push and an extreme left-wing agenda. So, after all that—please Democrats, go nuts. It only helps Trump. Be sure to give all communications duties to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Leninist Girl Scout Troop from hell. Some of them have time now that their trip to Israel was canceled.

"Things start with a spark, and sometimes the spark is ignored,"

Being Green is crazier than a bedbug that spark may well have started by a malfunction from one of his electric shock treatments.

NEVER FORGET that not one GOP Congressman DARED to do what he has done to the Fraud, because, as the Hussein Heads HERE told us, “It wouldn’t have done any good.”

FOAD Hussein Heads, and your god the Fraud you rode in on!!!

I always read the replies of the readers in Townhall.com. One wrote the following that I thought was good

A woman in a hot-air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

“She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a Republican.”

“I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

The man smiled and responded, “You must be an Obama Democrat.”

“I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

“Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”

the spark can cause others to become consumed with the righteousness of a cause and participate in the cause itself.

This summarizes their strategy. For 2 1/2 years the left has been simply trying to egg on their followers to take to the streets in order to force President Trump from office via popular outrage. Why bother with proof or facts once the ball gets rolling? Even after several "nationwide" protests, they could never get to critical mass necessary to snowball.

Reverend Al Green is a well known singer.

This foolish Democrat is on par with Sheila Jackson Lee, also from Democrat.

You think that Green has a chance?

He’s a bigot and a troll. He needs Congress to reprimand him for abusing the process.

I have been wondering, when Trump DOES win reelection what will the Dems cook up to try to cripple his initiatives this time??? Does anyone think for a second they will settle down and start working for the good of us all? I have a feeling that Trump will garner a lot more votes this time around so whatever they try will not only be seen as an attack against Trump but against a MAJORITY of the voters, too. This may very well spell the end of the Liberal Democrat party and restore the image of a free, just, fair, good and God-honoring America once more. I can dream, can’t I?

Why does the Left hate Trump?

Because Trump:
- created over three million new jobs,
- sunk unemployment across the board to historic lows,
- increased paychecks, and
- sent consumer and small business confidence to their highest marks in years.

The Left HATES that. The Left HATES individual success. Individual success feeds freedom and militates against government dependency.

The Left is the Enemy Within.

They’ll get good and ready for 2024.

I’ve been wondering, what is the Right doing to ensure the RIGHT guy is nominated and elected? - Like Reagan and Trump, almost certainly against the wishes of the GOP Establishment, .

this is a clickbait article ripped off from an NPR fake news clickbait article that conflates the following:

“Now, more than 120 House Democrats have publicly said they support an impeachment inquiry”

with

“a majority of House Democrats support impeachment”

supporting an inquiry is NOT the same thing as supporting impeachment

my prediction is that Green won’t get 120 Dems to vote for his 4th impeachment attempt ...

Good points. I can think of several Conservatives in and out of Congress who would make excellent candidates - men AND women. The question is who would be willing to tolerate the horrendous pressure and scrutiny that would rain down from all places upon them, their family and friends? It will take someone very strong willed and stomached. We have only seen a part of what these demonically-influenced villains are capable of. It will take a Trump-like attitude to overcome them.

Don’t be silly Matt Vespa.

There will be not impeachment. And there will be no formal impeachment proceedings on the Tee Vee.

Won’t happen.

Take that to the bank.
