SENATE WILL RUN OUT CLOCK ON IMPEACHMENT VOTE
Reports: MCCONNELL WILL AVOID SPECIAL SESSION, IMPLYING NO #impeachment vote #Trump
At 2:27pm on Monday, March 30, 1981 President Reagan was shot. I was a child at the time and when I got out of schoolat 3:13pm, headed to swim practice. When I got there, I heard the coaches say that he’d been shot and was in surgery and no one knew how he was. Most of the people were upset and in shock.
Something that I still remember from that day was that one of the older kids said, “I hope he dies.” I couldn’t believe that the left wanted someone to die like that. What was a high school age kid doing thinking that and saying it like it wasn’t the unmitigated evil that it was? What were the parents teaching this kid?
Well, all over the left again this morning, we are seeing “I hope Trump dies.”
The “compassionate, civil, civilized and caring left” hoping someone dies.
What is wrong with these people?

President Trump should order the FDA, CDC etc to begin administering any vaccines in production one month after Phase 3 trials begin to anyone who wishes to receive them. It would be breaking the rules, but I hope that Trump would consider ordering the CDC/FDA etc to allow the vaccines that are currently in Phase 3 trials to be administered prior to the completion of the trial, but after the first month when (IF) the trials shows they are safe during the first month. e.g. one month after the first phase of the 3rd trial, let people who want it, get it since they’ve already ordered tons of doses and they are manufacturing them now. There is really no downside since it would’ve been safely administered in phase 1, 2, and 3. I am sure there would be pushback from the bureaucracies, but it would be a smart thing to do even if it doesn’t fit the CDC/FDA etc. rules which were written for non-pandemic times. I am sure plenty of people would use such a move to attempt to hurt him for the election, but if the science said it was safe, it would make the political objections obvious. Most importantly it would help everyone if it was effective.
If Trump wins in 2020, he should make sure to print the speech that is handed to democrats on 200 lb paper. Of course hopefully Pelosi won’t be sitting behind him.
“I have had zero Democrat lawmakers volunteer to have them released into their districts, states and I think they know that. And that’s what we’re going to be discussing over the next three weeks.”
That is a threat – I have the power to do the catch and release where and when I want to.
Do you want your constituents to be the ones who see the illegals in your district? Do you want to be seen as weak on drugs and security? Do you want to be seen as Pelosi’s pawn? When busloads of illegals are released there, your people will be the one’s paying the price instead of some other faceless people “somewhere else.”
It is NIMBY applied to illegals.
GWHB’s heart was in the right place, but not his head and that got him into trouble.
In many ways though he got us where we are today. After the “read my lips” promise being broken and and appointing Justice Souter, he lost a lot of Republicans and their votes. Not to mention giving Sotomayor her start on the Federal bench didn’t help his standing since he appointed a judge that is a racist and sexist by her own statements. And she is anything but unbiased.
His loss of votes due to his betrayal of his promises, gave us Clinton. If he hadn’t betrayed the Republican voters, Clinton would’ve had a hard time winning (if he ran again) in 1996. Perot probably wouldn’t have been as successful in 1992 because Bush would’ve been true to his word and likely he wouldn’t have run in 1996. Likewise, then we probably wouldn’t have had President George W Bush in 2000, and almost definitely not 1996 – the odds of a father-son President in direct succession at that time (or now) seems unlikely. That would’ve meant an 8 year term from 1996-2004 and likely an 8 year term from 2004-2012 which would’ve meant we wouldn’t have had President Obama. And in that case, we probably wouldn’t have a President Trump right now.
Is that how it would’ve panned out? Perhaps, perhaps not, but “little” things like breaking a promise to the nation, no matter whether you are being lied to about it being “good” ripple on down through the decades.
