democrats unveil their agenda- "Get Trump"
Flopping Aces ^ | 11-14-18 | DrJohn

Posted on 11/14/2018 10:13:10 AM PST by Starman417

democrats told America what they were planning to do should they retake the House and or Senate. Well, it's what they said they would do. Their tax plan? Increases, naturally

The rest of what they say they want to do:

Lowering health care costs, rebuilding infrastructure and running the House chamber with more transparency and openness are near the top of the Democratic agenda, Pelosi said during a talk Tuesday at Harvard's Institute of Politics. Democrats would also prioritize giving legal status to young immigrants, known as Dreamers, and strengthening background checks on gun purchases, she said.
Thing is, there won't be time for any of this. At this very moment they're loading up the subpoena cannon:

Jonathan Swan wrote in August that Republicans had already catalogued numerous oversight targets that Democrats had signaled, including:

Adam Schiff wants to rescue Acosta, Nita Lowey wants to dig into the Space Force thing. And there are already 64 subpoenas that have been filed by democrats, including:
  1. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services Withholding Documents on Trump Administration Child Separation Policy
  2. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross Withholding Testimony on Census 2020 Citizenship Question
  3. Department of Veterans Affairs Withholding Documents Relating to Reports that Mar-a-Lago Members Influencing Department Decisions
  4. White House Withholding Report and Documents on Security Clearance Process Required by Law
  5. White House Withholding Documents on Revocation of John Brennan Security Clearance
  6. White House Withholding Documents on John Bolton Security Clearance
  7. State Department Withholding Documents on Retaliation
  8. Office of Personnel Management Refusing to Provide Briefing on Complying with Court Order
  9. Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Withholding Documents on Medicaid Work Requirements
  10. Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Withholding Documents on Scrubbing of Department Websites
  11. State Department Withholding Documents on Decision to Close Cyber Office
  12. Director of National Intelligence Testifying Before the Oversight Committee on the extent of the Russian Threat to Our Country and Our Elections.
There are many more at the link. These will occupy about 150% of legislative time. It will be quite amusing to watch as dems fight for their own personal desires.

It's very clear that THE democrat agenda is cripple Trump and take him down.

After seeing the Dems literally ignore House committee subpoenas for the past 8 years, isn’t it safe to say the Dems could launch a hundred investigations and the GOP targets could just ignore them?

Benghazi? Nothing.
Uranium One? Nothing.
Clinton Shenanigans? Nothing.

When the GOP failed to assert the power of the House during the Obama years, they really minimized its power to threaten anyone. As a libertarian the weakening of government warms my heart, but why do I feel like the GOP will ruin a good thing by suddenly allowing these House investigation to have power over them?

The glorious time of WINNING and MAGA, as introduced by DJT, seems to be in jeopardy.

KAOS needs to sue the DNC for stealing their shtick and giving terroristic groups in general a bad name.

Trump should release documents showing Obama misuse of the IRS and at some point in the press conference observe that the DNC out to get him should be glad he doesn’t have Obama’s or their ethics.

Pray, buy more ammo, and vote (for all it’s worth).

Our republic has always functioned because the politicians accepted the will of the people after elections and worked together to do what’s best for the country.

This is no longer the case.

Whatever happened for “by the people, and for the people”. Next election we need to start over with new candidates on both sides of the aisles. We keep saying “term limits”, we need to follow through on that. We all remember aging, decrepit and dying senators being rolled into the Senate on hospital gurneys to vote, and no longer having their mental capacity. Crazy!!!

The “progressive” party has really always been the “regressive” party. They are reactionary.

Excuse my ignorance, but I have to ask, what legal right does anyone have to Trump’s personal tax returns? And the House is not a legal body, am I correct? The only legal bodies that could demand his returns would be the IRS, FBI or police forces, no?

That’s my take. Resist, obstruct, ignore subpoenas, take the Fifth, use the “I don’t recall” line. We can play that game too.
