Steyer lays out reasons to impeach President Trump

I'm trying to determine if being a "climate denier", wanting to overturn the ACA, or legally codify the "dreamers" are impeachable offenses. Steyer seems to think so. So far, about 1,000,000 raving morons have signed the petition. ALL of them them need to go back to high school and take a basic civics class. This is why the Dems will not take the House or Senate in 2018. Rather than be preoccupied with what's good for the average American, they pant over impeaching a President with what amounts to nothing charges.

Oh, BTW, Corker and Flake "leading members" of his party? Bwaaaaaa. Give me a break.


"Dear Elected Official,

This is not a time for “patience” — Donald Trump is not fit for office. It is evident that there is zero reason to believe “he can be a good president.”

Whether by the nature of Mr. Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin and Russia, his willingness to exploit the office of the Presidency for his personal gain and treat the government like a family enterprise, his conduct during Charlottesville, his decision to pull out of the Paris climate accords, or his seeming determination to take the nation to war, he has violated the Constitution, the office of the Presidency, and the trust of the public. He is a clear and present danger to the United States of America.

Republican Senator Bob Corker, Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, referred to the Trump White House as a day care center, and observed that this president has put us “on the path to World War III.” This comes following reports that Trump’s own Secretary of State referred to him as a “moron” and that Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of Defense James Mattis have an agreement not to leave Trump home alone for fear of what he could do. And we have seen other Republican Senators, including Senators Sasse and Flake, express their own profound concerns.

If Trump has lost the trust of the members of his own administration and leading members of his own party, surely it is time to act.

An accounting of his record to date leads to the same conclusion. He is turning his back on Lady Liberty by holding immigrant children hostage. He is actively sabotaging the Affordable Care Act — a law he is constitutionally obligated to faithfully execute — while seeking to strip away health care coverage that will leave millions of Americans to choose between life and bankruptcy. He is repealing clean air protections and unleashing polluters, even as increasingly catastrophic natural disasters supercharged by our warming planet ravaged the country throughout the summer — from hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, to the wildfires that have raged across California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana. He has threatened to reduce aid for millions of American citizens in Puerto Rico who are struggling to survive without drinkable water or electricity — a move that would be a total dereliction of his duty. And every day, Americans are left bracing for a Twitter screed that could set off a nuclear war. These actions represent systemic attacks on our nation’s future. They endanger every single one of your constituents. That’s why you have a duty to speak out. "

TRUMP needs to stop vacationing.

Unless, of course, they're doing major renovations in the West Wing. What was he supposed to do, camp outside in a tent? Get real MSM. It was a nothing story that you tried to make something out of. Maybe you should report the unemployment numbers, or the stock market numbers, or the latest GDP numbers. Oh wait, that would be positive news. Can't have that.

I just took a look at Google News. Here is what I saw ...

1 Snopes
3 the Hill
1 Atlantic
1 AP
1 Newsmax

All of them negative coverage of President Trump or the GOP. Except Newsmax. No bias there at all.

CNN. Now this is *not* fake news.

Louise Mensch Fools Liberals Again With Major Conspiracy Theory

I'm still waiting for the indictments? Aren't you?

"For undisclosed reasons, 'anonymous sources' are leaking to Mensch—but not to major news organizations

According to renowned Russian conspiracy theorist Louise Mensch, the mainstream media “is being scooped on the story of the century.” In her Patribotics blog post, Mensch claims—based on anonymous sources—that a “sealed indictment has been granted against Donald Trump.” Claude Taylor, Mensch’s conspiracy theorist partner (who touts himself as a former Clinton White House staffer even though he only worked in the volunteer office) took to Twitter in tandem: “Louise Mensch and I are reporting that a sealed indictment has been issued against Trump by FISA court to serve as the basis of Impeachment.” For undisclosed reasons these “anonymous sources” are leaking to Mensch and Taylor but not to major news organizations.

The first major problem with this claim is that FISA courts don’t issue indictments—they only review surveillance applications for foreign spies—and they don’t oversee any grand juries that would issue such indictments. The use of any information obtained from surveillance warrants would have to be authorized by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who reviews all the applications. “No information acquired pursuant to this subchapter shall be disclosed for law enforcement purposes unless such disclosure is accompanied by a statement that such information, or any information derived therefrom, may only be used in a criminal proceeding with the advance authorization of the Attorney General.”

Even though Mensch and Taylor’s overtly false claims were mocked by many, but thousands on Twitter fell for the conspiracy—including several journalists and public figures with large platforms.

Celebrity George Takei tweeted his hope for “a sealed indictment of Trump from the FBI.” Too bad the FBI doesn’t issue indictments, either—that would be the Department of Justice. Actress Emma Kennedy corroborated Mensch’s FISA indictment conspiracy, and GQ‘s Keith Olbermann retweeted “could be huge if true.” Olbermann and others claimed Mensch’s initial FISA story was true, but The New York Times debunked it. “To date, reporters for The New York Times with demonstrated sources in that world have been unable to corroborate that the court issued any such order,” responded the Times‘ Charlie Savage.

So far Mensch has accused Bernie Sanders of being a “Russia agent of influence,” claimed the Ferguson Riots were funded by Putin and that Anthony Weiner was catfished by Russian hackers. She called ProPublica, Democracy Now and several other media outlets Russian shills, accused anti-fascist protesters of being Russian actors, cited the Boston Marathon bombing as a Russian attack and linked a London terrorist attack to Putin."

Arizona Man Arrested for Threatening Congresswoman Over Trump Support

The tolerance of the left on full display.

The FBI has arrested an Arizona man on suspicion of threatening to shoot Rep. Martha McSally (R., Ariz.) for her congressional votes in support of President Trump.

Tuscon Unified School District employee Steve Martan, 58, was arrested for allegedly threatening to assault and murder McSally in three different, expletive-filled messages left on her congressional office voicemail on May 2 and May 10, the Arizona Daily Star reported Monday.

A criminal complaint for the case was filed in U.S. District Court in Tucson on May 12 and detailed the content of each voicemail.

"Yeah this is for Martha McSally," Martan allegedly said in the first message, before saying that he wanted to wring the lawmaker's neck.

All roads lead back to Russia.

Except when they don't. I find this line of reasoning by the far left to be absolutely fascinating. They will take any minor or non-substantive factoid (Trump went to Russia for a beauty pageant) and spin it into a complete theory of international political intrigue. I can't imagine anything more vacuous and unproductive.

No arrests today. What happened?
