Senate Democrats Breaking with Speaker Pelosi, Want Her to Send Them Impeachment Articles

Senate Democrats are beginning to get impatient and now want Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to stop playing politics and just send over her articles of impeachment.

In the first sign of the Democrat Party wavering on impeachment, Senate Democrats are beginning to get impatient and now want Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to stop playing politics and just send over her articles of impeachment so the Senate can begin its phase of this farce.

Pelosi and her House Democrats rushed through the impeachment process so that they could claim they got impeachment done by Christmas. And during their slipshod process, the House Democrats all claimed that impeaching President Trump was “urgent.”

But now it has been a month since Pelosi and her crew impeached Trump and yet they still have not sent the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate so the upper chamber can perform its constitutionally mandated part of the act of impeachment.

Of course, this is all political. It has nothing whatever to do with the law. Pelosi is holding the articles back as a weapon in an attempt to force the U.S. Senate to craft its hearing to her liking. But, truth be told, the House has no legal role whatever in making any such demands on the Senate.

Now, with all the dithering and posturing, Senate Democrats are getting tired of Pelosi’s games and some seem no longer willing to allow her to keep grandstanding like this.

Louisiana Senator Doug Jones is one Democrat ready to “get moving.”

Per the Washington Times:

Sen. Doug Jones, a vulnerable 2020 Democrat from the red state of Alabama, said it is time for the process to get started.

“I’m hoping they will come over here soon. I think most people are ready to get moving on this,” he told CNN.

Other Senate Democrats are ready, too:

Sens. Chris Murphy, Connecticut Democrat, Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut Democrat, Joe Manchin, West Virginia Democrat, and Angus King, Maine independent, have all told the press they are ready to have Ms. Pelosi transmit the articles, according to multiple reports.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, also wants to get the show on the road.

“If we’re going to do it, she should send them over,” Feinstein said, according to Bloomberg News reporter Laura Litvan. “I don’t see what good delay does.”

Despite this growing level of impatience with her political tactics, Pelosi still insists she will hold back the articles until she can force the Senate to her will.

But it does appear that the clock is ticking.

Stocks Surge After Sen. Bernie Sanders Ends His Presidential Campaign

Published

on

“U.S. equity markets rallied to session highs Wednesday after Sen. Bernie Sanders announced he was suspending his presidential campaign,” reports Fox Business.

“The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 593 points, or 2.62 percent, ahead of the noon hour while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite rose 2.4 percent and 2.04 percent, respectively. The gains have lifted the S&P 500 out of its bear market, which would officially end with the index closing above 2,684.88.”

TDW:

The potential reopening of the economy is not the only fresh prospect easing stock market tensions. Now that the “Bernie Revolution” has officially halted, stocks are surging upwards as investors warm to the fact that a socialist will not be occupying the White House next February.

On Wednesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) suspended his presidential campaign after former Vice President Joe Biden rebounded from a losing position to overtake him in the primary. Shortly thereafter, his exit from the race yielded positive dividends in the stock market as the Dow gained 700 points.

Ed Mills, Washington policy strategist at Raymond James, told CNBC that Sanders’ exit has eased tensions over the economic fallout from some of his policy proposals.

“Sanders’ exit removes the tail risk of some of his policies, immediately sets up focus on Biden vs. Trump,” said Mills. “Biden’s policies will get a new scrutiny now [that] he is the presumptive nominee, but the truth of the matter is that the market will be looking towards Washington more to help the economy and much of the assistance matches his platform.” More

This shows the stock market is smarter than Democrats. When you remove an enemy of our country the sticks go up. Are the democrats ever going to wake up and realize their party changed for the worse? You don’t have to go down on the titanic just because you bought a ticket. Wise up and join the Trump patriots.

Nancy Pelosi Says She Will Refuse More Money For Paycheck Protection Program Without Far-Left ‘Considerations’

Published

on

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says that she will refuse more coronavirus relief money for the paycheck protection program unless far-left “considerations” are included.

The PPP “really needs money right away, we know that, because of the demand,” Pelosi said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “We have no data, though. We don’t know so much about who is being served, who is being underserved.”

“And so when the secretary called this morning to ask for the additional funds, we were like … we want to make sure that the program is administered in a way that does not solidify inequality in how people have access to capital,” Pelosi added.

To win the Democrats’ support, the Speaker wants guarantees that the funds will benefit “everyone who qualifies for it.”

“So we want to have certain considerations if we were to go forward with that,” Pelosi said.

Rasmussen poll: Joe Biden and Andrew Cuomo tied for Democratic presidential nomination.

The new poll of 1,000 likely voters conducted April 2-5 found that 46% of likely Democratic voters still believe Mr. Biden would make a better presidential candidate for their party.

Among all likely voters, it’s Biden 38%, Cuomo 38%, with 24% not sure.”

Rasmussen:

Joe Biden may be sweeping the traditional primary system, but Democrats are evenly divided when asked if New York Governor Andrew Cuomo would make a better challenger against President Trump in November.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of Likely Democratic Voters still believe Biden would make a better presidential candidate for their party this fall. But just as many (45%) opt for Cuomo instead, even though he isn’t even in the race. Nine percent (9%) are undecided.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has said he was not interested in being Biden’s running mate. Now we can see why.

Obama’s White House Photographer Deletes Twitter Account After Obscene Anti-Trump Tirade

On Saturday, Barack Obama’s hate-filled former official White House photographer erupted in a vile tirade against President Donald Trump.

Published

On Saturday, Barack Obama’s hate-filled former official White House photographer erupted in a vile tirade against President Donald Trump. Now Pete Souza has deleted his Twitter account in disgrace.

Souza jumped to his new defunct account to drop the f-bomb against Trump.

“Am I allowed to say “fuck” on Twitter? Fuck you potus. You’re a pathetic human being,” he wrote.

Remember, this outburst of childish hatred was disgorged from a one-time official member of the White House. Is this the sort of comportment we want from such a person?

Naturally, when the left saw the tweet, Souza became a liberal hero.

It wasn’t long before his profane, ill-conceived tweet earned 76,000 likes and almost 9,000 retweets from disgusting liberals celebrating his venom.

Even Soledad O’Brien, a so-called journalist who was fired by CNN, signed on with Souza’s hatemongering.

However, despite the left’s rabid support of Souza’s ignorance, the former White House employee ended up deleting his entire Twitter account.

Clearly, he understood just what an ass he had become.

It would not be surprising if Obama’s people directed him to delete the account, too.

After all, this sort of dark act just before an election us not helpful at all.

Democrats Introduce Measure To Give Coronavirus Relief Check To Illegal Aliens

Published

on

House Democrats introduced legislation Friday that would allow illegal immigrants to receive money from the coronavirus relief package.

Breitbart:

Democrats on Friday introduced a measure to amend the $2 trillion CARES Act, extending the cash payment benefit to non-citizens, including illegal aliens.

Three House Democrats, Reps. Lou Correa (CA), Judy Chu (CA), and Raúl Grijalva (AZ), introduced the Leave No Taxpayer Behind Act designed to amend the cash payment portion of the CARES Act — the $2 trillion emergency economic relief measure designed to help U.S. citizens who are facing economic hardship caused by the coronavirus pandemic — to extend to non-citizens.

Currently, the CARES Act requires recipients to have a Social Security number. ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers) taxpayers, which include foreign nationals and those residing in the country illegally, are not eligible and will not receive cash assistance. That is an “egregious error,” according to the Democrats’ press release.

“The Leave No Taxpayer Behind Act amends the CAREs Act to ensure that all taxpayers are eligible for their $1,200 relief check,” the release states:

Every individual taxpayer irrespective of citizenship status should receive government assistance. With more than 140,000 coronavirus cases in the United States, it is imperative we come together. This pandemic has led to the closure of many small businesses, which will have a disproportionate impact on immigrants. The “Leave No Taxpayer Behind” Act will ensure immigrants critical to our economy are not forgotten.

“I was appalled to learn hardworking, taxpaying immigrants were left out of the $2 trillion CARES Act,” Correa said in a statement. More

If they are undocumented, how would we even know who they are? It is just more liberal lunacy on display! Ask their home countries to provide cash assistance to their citizens, we should not be the world’s piggy bank. The only thing the U.S. should be spending $$ on illegals for is a one-way ticket straight home.

Biden Believes Virus Relief Checks Are Being Held Up Because Trump Wants To Physically Sign Them

Published

on

Former VP Joe Biden bizarrely suggested that Donald Trump was holding-up relief efforts to “put his signature on a physical check.”

“No American should have to wait a single minute so Donald Trump can put his signature on a physical check,” said Biden.

RS:

Someone really needs to let Joe Biden give this whole thing up already.

He’s struggling so hard to be relevant from his basement and it’s just not working.

Every time the media covers him there, he offers up another gaffe and more evidence that he’s not the right person for the job.

Today’s entry was more than a bit bizarre. For some reason he seemed to believe that virus relief checks going out to help people whether the crisis were being held up because the president wanted to put his signature on physical checks. That is straight-up nuts.

What’s even more bizarre was he was actually reading it.

Most checks would be direct deposited. But no, Trump isn’t physically signing any of them. If he really believes that, there’s a big problem. No one is holding up checks but getting money out to all Americans can’t be done in a day. But if we want to talk about avoidable delay, let’s talk about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats who held it up for a week trying to get their pork and pet programs in. More

How is it possible for anyone to be this stupid? One of the hacks at the briefing just asked the president: “Do you want to sign the checks?” Sure, and he’s going to sign the direct deposits too. Your bank statement will show that the deposit came from “TRUMP.”
