Trump’s Approval Rating Soars to 52% Despite Democrat’s Hate-Filled Impeachment Drama

Despite the Democrat Party and the media’s avalanche of daily hate, President Donald Trump’s approval rating has jumped to 52 percent.

Published

on

The Democrat Party has been doing its level best to nullify the 2016 election, but it continues to look like their hate is bouncing right off Teflon Donald Trump. And now, his approval rating has jumped to 52 percent.

The media has been nearly 100 percent negative against President Donald Trump since before his inauguration, and the left’s impeachment drumbeat has been resounding since the first few minutes he took office (literally).

With all the hate heaped upon this president for every minute of his first term, one would think that everyone in the nation would hate the man.

Yet, Donald Trump’s approval rating has either held steady, or has gone up. And this week he has hit 52 percent.

Trump’s staying power is remarkable considering the deep state forces aligned against him.

The number comes from Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll reported on Thursday.

“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove,” the pollster reported on December 5.

Rasmussen adds, “The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 40% who Strongly Disapprove.”

Amazingly, that puts Trump six points higher than Barack Obama at the same point in their presidencies.

On December 6, 2009, Barack Obama had only earned 46 percent approval.

Also, remember that the media was 100 percent positive in its “reporting” on Obama and almost never published a bad story about him.

The numbers are amazing.

Traitor Mitt Romney Tries to Backtrack from Supporting Democrat Impeachment Gambit

After his repeated anti-Trump statements, Utah “Republican” Senator Mitt Romney tried to back away from his outright support for impeachment on Tuesday.

Published

After his repeated anti-Trump statements, Utah “Republican” Senator Mitt Romney tried to back away from his outright support for impeachment on Tuesday.

Democrats were likely expecting Romney to come out swinging against Trump as the U.S. Senate begins its part of the impeachment drama this week. Instead, Romney took a few steps backward from his previous anti-Trump support for impeachment.

Romney’s reaction to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s outline for the Senate’s proceedings struck a slightly different tone than his previous comments.

As Daily Wire reported:

While Democrats are taking to various media platforms to express outrage over the Republicans’ plans for handling the trial, accusing McConnell of attempting to “cover up” the president’s alleged misconduct by fast-tracking the proceedings, Romney pointed out in a statement issued ahead of the debate Tuesday that the rules set forth by his colleagues “align closely” with those established for the impeachment trial of then-President Bill Clinton, rules which were unanimously approved by the Senate.

Meanwhile, Romney’s Democrat pals railed over McConnell’s plans. Sen. Schumer, for instance, absurdly exclaimed: “We are staring down an erosion of the sacred democratic principles for which our founders fought a bloody war of independence.”

Romney, though, did not exactly support the Democrat line. Though agreeing with the left that the allegations against Trump are “extremely serious,” Romney added that he thinks the Senate should “put political biases aside” and hear the case in “good faith.”

“The allegations outlined in the articles of impeachment passed by the House are extremely serious — did the President abuse his office for personal political gain, and did he obstruct Congress’ investigation by blocking subpoenas?” Romney said in the statement. “These allegations demand that the Senate put political biases aside, and make good faith efforts to listen to arguments from both sides and thoroughly review facts and evidence. I have made clear to my colleagues and the public that the Senate should have the opportunity to decide on witnesses following the opening arguments, as occurred in the Clinton trial. The organizing resolution released tonight includes this step, and overall, it aligns closely with the rules package approved 100-0 during the Clinton trial. If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts.”

Romney later pushed out a press release slamming Democrats:

As we approach the impeachment trial of the President, I feel a deep sense of responsibility to the Constitution, to the people of Utah and to the nation. I want to share my thoughts directly with Utahns — the people I was elected to serve in the Senate — about how I plan to approach this process.

Last week, I and all senators swore an oath to ‘do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: so help me God’ in determining whether the president has committed impeachable offenses that merit his removal from office. Deciding whether or not a sitting president should be removed from office is perhaps the most solemn matter that can ever come before the United States Senate. I enter this task with an open mind and a recognition of my solemn responsibility to fulfill my oath.

The allegations outlined in the articles of impeachment passed by the House are extremely serious — did the President abuse his office for personal political gain, and did he obstruct Congress’ investigation by blocking subpoenas? These allegations demand that the Senate put political biases aside, and make good faith efforts to listen to arguments from both sides and thoroughly review facts and evidence. I have made clear to my colleagues and the public that the Senate should have the opportunity to decide on witnesses following the opening arguments, as occurred in the Clinton trial. The organizing resolution released tonight includes this step, and overall, it aligns closely with the rules package approved 100-0 during the Clinton trial. If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts.

I will conclude by noting that this is not a situation anyone would wish upon our country. It is difficult, divisive, and further inflames partisan entrenchment. There is inevitable political pressure from all sides. I have spent — and will continue to spend — many hours in careful deliberation about what this process and its potential outcomes could mean for our country. The best we in the Senate can do is strive to meet the obligations outlined by our founding fathers — to honor our constitutional duty and fulfill our oath to do impartial justice. That is the commitment I make solemnly and in good faith to the people of Utah and our nation.

So, why has Romney suddenly started pulling back a bit from his extreme hate for Trump?

His poll numbers are tanking, of course.

According to KSL.com:

There was an 8% drop in his approval rating among Republicans in the most recent Mitt Romney polls. It went from 65% in the third quarter to 57% in the last quarter.

But support among Democrats went up from 42 to 46% over the same time for the Utah Republican.

And so… suddenly Romney is looking a bit more like a Republican to regain support.

Biden: “We Should Be Helping China”

Published

on

2020 democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said that “China’s not our problem” when discussing foreign relations during a town hall in Muscatine, Iowa on 10/23/19.

“We talk about China as our competitor. We should be helping and benefiting ourselves by doing that. But the idea that China is going to eat our lunch — I remember the debates in the late ’90s, remember, Japan was going to own us? Give me a break.”

He’s clueless!

Biden has no idea what he’s talking about when it comes to China and this proves it.

Illinois State Board Of Elections Admits Non-U.S. Citizens May Have Voted Illegally In 2018

Published

on

The Illinois State Board of Elections admits non-U.S. citizens may have voted illegally in 2018. Non-citizens were accidentally automatically registered to vote.

Democratic leader blames ‘programming error.’

Agency spokesman Matt Dietrich told WCIA-TV that 574 noncitizens were inadvertently registered to vote prior to the election — and a number of them exercised that power. At least 19 actually voted.

State Board of Elections admits non-U.S. citizens may have voted illegally in 2018

“We do know that some of them voted,” he said.

WCIA:

The Illinois State Board of Elections acknowledged that out of 574 non-U.S. citizens who were inadvertently registered to vote in Illinois, an unknown number of them may have voted illegally in the 2018 election.

“We do know that some of them voted” in the 2018 election, spokesman Matt Dietrich said in a phone call on Monday afternoon, though his office was not immediately able to determine how many of them may have voted, or how many may have been legal citizens who simply filled out their state form incorrectly. Dietrich expects the elections agency will have more specific answers when state workers return to their desks after a government holiday.

Secretary of State Jesse White’s office admitted it was at fault for the “isolated” incident, and offered assurances that the “programming error” in the state’s new automatic voter registration process has since been repaired.

Illinois law allows immigrants who are not citizens to get a driver’s license or state identification. Both state and federal law prohibits non-citizens from participating in American elections. More

The left in America is counting on voter fraud to win the election in November 2020. That is why the Blue states are giving drivers licenses to illegal aliens.

The elections of states like California, New York, and  Illinois that knowingly register illegals to vote should be challenged in court.

Pelosi Slammed for Faking Use of Dozens of Pens During Impeachment Signing Ceremony

Speaker Pelosi was ridiculed, Wednesday, for faking the use of dozens of pens she claimed she used to sign her name.

Published

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was ridiculed, Wednesday, for faking the use of dozens of pens she claimed she used to sign her signature on the Democrat articles of impeachment.

The signing ceremony was covered live by cable news outlets, but almost immediately social media exploded with people slamming the optics of Pelosi smiling while divvying out the pens to her Democrat pals in rampant celebration only a month after referring to impeachment as “sad” and “somber.”

Even Trump-hating radio talker Tom Nichols (who pretends to be a “conservative”) slammed Pelosi for the pen trick.

“Pelosi has handled the optics of impeachment well, right up until that signing ceremony, which was awkward. Handing out pens should have been done in private. This was not some celebratory moment,” he tweeted.

GOP National Spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington also went after Pelosi:

You know what you hand out pens for? Accomplishments.

Like, say, signing a historic trade deal with China.

So it’s fitting that Democrats are handing out pens for their sole accomplishment: impeachment

Democrats have done NOTHING for the American people

Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.) also tweeted: “They claim it’s a somber, serious occasion they’re heartbroken over…and then they pass out impeachment-signing pens with special cases. Folks. You can’t make it up.”

Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) wrote: “Just walked through aftermath of this ‘signing ceremony. Dems were giddy with excitement in Capitol hallway, asking, ‘Did you get your pen?’ The American people will hold House Dems accountable for making a mockery of their duty to the Constitution.”

Pelosi’s Dems Transmit Fraudulent ‘Articles’ to Senate for Part Two of Impeachment

The Democrat infested House of Representatives have finally transmitted its fraud-filled “articles of impeachment” to the U.S. Senate.

Published

on

The Democrat infested House of Representatives have finally transmitted its fraud-filled “articles of impeachment” to the U.S. Senate so that the upper chamber can fulfill their part of the impeachment process.

After a month of dithering, Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has finally finished her part of the job.

Per Fox News:

The resolution, which passed 228-193 largely along party lines, came nearly a month after lawmakers voted to impeach the president on two counts.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., officially signed the articles Wednesday afternoon during an “engrossment ceremony.” Clerk of the House Cheryl Johnson and House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving walked a note over to the Senate notifying the upper chamber of Congress that Pelosi had signed the articles of impeachment and appointed managers to the trial.

No Republicans voted for the resolution to transmit the articles, and one Democrat, Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., was the only Democrat to vote against.

But waiting a month the transmit these fake articles is proof that the whole thing has been a political game from the start, not a matter of law or danger to the nation.

After all, every single Democrat who spoke in favor of impeachment called the act “urgent.” It was “urgent” to impeach President Trump, they said.

And yet… it was so “urgent” that they waited for a month to get the articles to the Senate so that the Senate could do their part?

Clearly it was not really urgent at all if they could dither for a month while Pelosi played political games with the articles.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., slammed the Democrats, saying, “This is not a moment this body should be proud of. As Pelosi says, impeachment is a national civics lesson. Let’s use this blunder as a teachable moment.”

“We wouldn’t abuse our power just for the sheer sake of politics to say you’re impeached forever because I dislike you,” McCarthy added.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also slammed the Democrats.

“It looks like today’s the day. House Democrats may finally stand behind the rushed, unfair, and nakedly partisan impeachment that they themselves delayed for four weeks. The ‘prosecutors’ have finally overcome their cold feet.,” he tweeted.

Nadler Says McConnell Perpetrating An ‘Unconstitutional & Disgusting Cover-Up’

Published

on

Impeachment ‘Manager’ Jerry Nadler ripped Majority Leader Mitch McConnell during a red-hot press conference today; accusing the top Republican of organizing an “unconstitutional and disgusting cover-up” to acquit President Donald Trump.

Here’s the video:

“This is a test of the Constitution. The President’s conduct violated the Constitution in every single way. Trying to rig an election, stonewalling Congress… It’s a test of the Constitution. The Senate is intended to conduct a fair trial. The American people know in a trial you permit witnesses,” said Jerry Nadler.

“If the Senate doesn’t admit witnesses and all documents the House wants to introduce, then the Senate is engaging in an unconstitutional and disgusting cover-up. The Senate is on trial as well as the President.”

Flashback: Bernie Sanders Says JFK’s Opposition To Castro Regime Made Him Want To “Puke”

Why didn’t he renounce his American citizenship and move to Cuba in a show of support?

Published

on

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders released an ad yesterday invoking the legacy of President John F. Kennedy. But in earlier remarks, he brutally criticized Kennedy and said the former president made him want to “puke.”

In 1986 Bernie Sanders reminisced about watching the 1960 presidential debates between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon and how it made him sick to hear them talk tough about Fidel Castro’s uprising.

“But I remember, for some reason, being very excited when Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba. I was a kid and I remember reading that,” the Independent Vermont senator said in a clip posted by The Reagan Battalion.

“And it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people,” he added. “And I remember…I was watching the debates, remember the famous Nixon-Kennedy debates. That was the first time the presidential candidates actually debated.”

Sanders continued, “And I was becoming increasingly interested in politics. And at that time, I was very excited and impressed by the Cuban Revolution. And there was Kennedy and Nixon talking about which particular method they should use about destroying the revolution.”

“Kennedy was saying that Nixon was too soft on communism…we should deal firmly with Fidel Castro,” Sanders shared. “And Nixon was playing the role of ‘Hey, you got to be patient. You can’t do these things. You go to negotiate.’”

The 2020 presidential hopeful then went on to suggest that what Nixon was really “upset about” was that “secretly they were planning the Bay of Pigs invasion, right then.”

“So, he was the liberal and Kennedy was playing the conservative,” Sanders shared. “But I actually got up from the room and almost left to puke because, for the first time in my adult life, what I was seeing is the Democrats and Republicans, both of them…that clearly there wasn’t a hold lot of difference between the two.”
